Liverpool in the battle for Dani Olmo...fierce competition from Premier League clubs Transfers

Liverpool’s attackers scored a lot of goals in the first half of the season, but as the second half progressed, they became less decisive in front of goal, often missing shots in one-on-one situations, which was one of the reasons why they dropped out of contention for the Premier League title.

Egyptian international Mohamed Salah, who will turn 32 this June, cannot hide the decline of age. Whether he moves to Saudi Arabia or not, it is essential to acquire a young attacker who can take over from the team’s ace, and moves are expected to be made in the transfer market this summer.

According to Sport, Liverpool are set to enter the race for Spanish midfielder Dani Olmo, with several clubs interested. Premier League giants Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City are all keen.

The 26-year-old attacking midfielder, who joined RB Leipzig from Dinamo Zagreb in the winter of 2020, has been a mainstay at the German club. He has scored 29 goals and 34 assists in 148 games so far, and has also made his debut for Spain in 2019, where he has pitched in 33 games.

This season, he has been playing more as a left or right winger than as an attacking midfielder in the Bundesliga. With his high flexibility, he performs at a high level in an attacking position and is a team player who should be in the team.

However, he is not a striker, as he is not a dominant scorer. As Liverpool struggle with decision-making in front of goal, a player who can be directly involved in the goal is preferred over a chance-maker if possible.

Will Liverpool really enter the fiercely competitive battle for the Spanish midfielder?
