Dinamo Zagreb’s Dani Olmo says he’s happy to hear that Barcelona have reportedly made a bid for his services and made it clear he is keen on a move in January.

Reports this week have claimed Barca have made an official offer for their former player who could be on his way back to the Camp Nou.

Olmo has talked up the transfer and said the best thing for him would be to leave in the January transfer window rather than wait until the summer.

“I am happy that the rumors have become a concrete proposal and that Barça is rethinking the possibility of returning home. I spent six years at La Masia and I was taught values ​​for life.

“[Leave in January?]I don’t know, it’s a matter of my representatives. But, if there is an understanding between the clubs, I think the best thing for everyone is to leave Zagreb now.

“Dinamo would get a good transfer and I would play in one of the biggest teams in the world, in one of the five best leagues. The biggest encouragement I can have is to train and learn with Messi.”
