Barcelona are reportedly the favourites to sign Manchester United and Chelsea target Dani Olmo in the January transfer window.
The Dinamo Zagreb midfielder is widely regarded as one of Spain’s best young prospects having been developed by Barcelona’s academy.
The 21-year-old has put together a string of good performances in the Champions League this season.
He scored two goals in six games in this year’s group stage, including a stunning volley against Manchester City .
And his form has led to him being linked with several of Europe’s leading clubs.
According to Goal , Spanish champions Barca are confident of securing a deal worth £25.6m for the playmaker, despite the Croatian club having an asking price of £34.1m.
Olmo, who has scored eight goals and registered seven assists in 22 appearances for Dinamo this season, is believed to have already held talks with United and Chelsea.
But he now seems most likely to return to the club that he joined as a youngster.

The playmaker does not reportedly want to sign an extension to his current contract with Dinamo Zagreb, which runs until 2021.
Olmo made his international debut in Spain’s 7-0 win over Malta in November, also scoring his first goal.
Barcelona currently sit level on points with rivals Real Madrid at the top of La Liga as the New Year gets underway.
Barcelona are rumoured to be the front runners to sign Dinamo Zagreb star Dani Olmo
Olmo seems adamant that the time is right to leave Zagreb if his recent comments are anything to go by.
Olmo told L’Esportiu in the week: “I am in the best form of my short career and I feel great.
“Maybe the ideal time to leave the Dinamo would have been last summer, but no offers came.
