Chelsea and Tottenham are set to lock horns this January transfer window over the signing of Dani Olmo.
However, they will also have to face Barcelona in the battle for the midfielder’s services.
The Spaniard is one of the most highly-rated Spanish talents coming into the game and is desperate to move to one of Europe’s big boys.
Olmo was part of the Spain squad that won the UEFA European Under-21 Championship last year in Italy – scoring the decisive goal in a 2-1 victory over Germany.
Plying his trade in Ukraine for Dinamo Zagreb, Europe’s elite are taking notice and a potential bargain deal is on the horizon.
Premier League clubs are keen on his services, principally Chelsea and Tottenham who have showed the most interest, according to L’Esportiu.
The two London outfits are desperate to bolster their squads in the search for more creativity.
Chelsea have at time struggled to break teams down this campaign and are allowed to splash the cash after a transfer ban was lifted.
And Tottenham are facing up to the fact that their midfield maestro Christian Eriksen is leaving as he refuses to sign a new contract – which expires this summer.

However, L’Esportiu also go on to state that Barcelona are well in the hunt for the 21-year-old.
They may face too large a hurdle for Chelsea and Spurs to clear, with Barcelona being able to offer the Spaniard a route back to return to his homeland.
Olmo is already a Spain international – scoring on his national debut against Malta in a 7-0 win.
