Premier League rivals eyes for Spanish Star amid potential Bundesliga exit
Chelsea and Arsenal are in competition for the signing of Dani Olmo, a brilliant midfielder from RB Leipzig, and are causing a stir in the Premier League. The 25-year-old forefront is apparently considering a move away from the Bundesliga club, making the English rivals an appealing proposition.
Despite having a contract with Leipzig until 2027, Olmo has openly expressed his desire to take on a new challenge, attracting Premier League giants Chelsea and Arsenal. Chelsea, who are having a difficult season, are looking to shore up their midfield options and are looking at Olmo as a possible solution to their problems. On the other hand, Arsenal sees the Spanish international as an opportunity to add creativity and goal danger to their attack.
Olmo, who has a £60 million release clause, is an appealing target for both teams, giving an alternative buy possibility. Although Leipzig is desperate to keep the talented midfielder, Olmo’s desire to return to Barcelona may push the transfer to England. However, due to financial constraints, Barcelona’s pursuit may be complicated, enabling Chelsea or Arsenal to negotiate a deal for the versatile midfielder.
Olmo showed great versatility and production during his time at RB Leipzig, scoring 26 goals in 127 matches while being a force across the forward line and attacking midfield. This makes him an appealing candidate for Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Chelsea, who is looking for reinforcements for the coming January transfer window. The race for Olmo’s services heats up as both London clubs look for ways to improve their squads and increase their competitive edge in the Premier League.
