EXCLUSIVE NEWS: Reported by Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool beats Barcelona in the race to sign Spanish star as player snubs Barcelona to agree personal terms with Liverpool. According to reports Liverpool has agreed on a deal to sign star worth £51m as player prefers a move to Anfield. Liverpool now has edge over Barca to seal £51m signing before mid July.


According to reports from Spain, Liverpool hold an advantage over Barcelona in securing the £51 million signing of Dani Olmo before mid-July.

Marca reported yesterday that the Spanish international’s release clause of 60 million euros (£51 million) is only active until July 15. After that date, the price will increase as he is a crucial member of the RB Leipzig squad.

The Madrid-based news source claims that Liverpool is among the English clubs considering a move for Olmo during the summer transfer window. Olmo, who played for Barcelona’s youth teams before leaving, is wanted back by the Catalan giants, but they cannot afford the transfer.

Marca explains: “The problem for Barcelona is that at this moment they cannot take the step to sign the player. The club is still restricted by Financial Fair Play and there is currently no space in the squad’s salary bill for Olmo to enter.”

Liverpool, on the other hand, have no financial constraints that would prevent them from signing Dani Olmo, who is awaiting attractive offers and wants his “future resolved” before July 15.

The 26-year-old had an injury-hit last season, making 25 appearances across all competitions, scoring 8 goals, and providing 5 assists. He can play in multiple offensive positions and has the quality to enhance Liverpool’s attack.

In your opinion, should Liverpool pay £51 million to sign Dani Olmo before mid-July?
