Barcelona have reportedly made an official offer to Dinamo Zagreb for midfielder Dani Olmo.

Mundo Deportivo and Sport are both reporting that the Spanish champions have been in touch with the Croatian side in an attempt to lure the midfielder back to the Camp Nou.

There is no detail offered about the fee or length of contract, but there’s a suggestion Barca want to bring him in next summer rather than in January.

Croatian newspaper Sportske novosti are also on the case and they quote the player’s agent, Andy Bara, as saying: “Yes, it’s true, the offer for Olmo has arrived. We’ll see how things develop.”

Olmo has hinted recently the time has come to move on from Dinamo Zagreb. He told Jugones: “I think my cycle there is over and I want to take the next step to continue improving.”

The youngster spent seven years at La Masia but left at the age of 16 to move to the Croatian side.

He spoke warmly about the club in November saying “they made me the footballer I am now” and refused to rule out coming back to the Camp Nou.
