Several Premier League clubs, including Liverpool and Manchester United, are showing interest in signing RB Leipzig attacker Dani Olmo during the summer transfer window.

Liverpool are ready to battle Manchester United and several other Premier League clubs to sign RB Leipzig attacking Dani Olmo. Liverpool are planning to bolster their attacking department after their attackers suffered a sudden dip in form in recent weeks.

The Reds faced dire consequences due to their poor form and complacency while many struggled with composure throughout this season. Liverpool wants to add fresh faces to usher in the new era under incoming manager Arne Slot and avoid recent mistakes.

Olmo has the versatility to play in multiple positions for his team, capable of playing anywhere behind the main forward. The 26-year-old has just entered the peak years of his career despite already having a good reputation in Europe.

RB Leipzig winger Dani Olmo is a potential transfer target for several top Premier League clubs including Liverpool.

He has featured immensely in the international level for Spain, delivering consistent performances as part of their attacking unit. The Spaniard has made 25 appearances for Leipzig in all competitions, contributing with eight goals and five assists this season.

The 26-year-old struggled with injuries this season, suffering from a knee injury first and then a more severe injury. He suffered acromioclavicular joint dislocation, forcing the Spaniard to miss 16 games for Leipzig from late October till December.

According to Spanish news outlet Sport (h/t Liverpool Echo), Liverpool, Man United and several top Premier League clubs want Olmo. The report is unsure about any club having an advantage in the transfer race to sign him in the summer.

With so many clubs interested in the Spanish international, the price tag is likely to increase due to several bids. According to Fabrizio Romano, Olmo has a 60 million Euros release clause that will be becoming active during the summer window.
