Chelsea make ‘firm offer’

Sport (via SportsWitness) claim that the Blues have made a ‘firm offer’ for the Dinamo Zagreb man, although there are no figures mentioned in the report, it is claimed that the Croatian side are after a figure of around £34 million for the 21-year-old.

What has he said?

“Last summer was an ideal time to take a next step,” Olmo told  Jugones (via Goal).

“In the end it did not happen and I said that I was equally happy because I wanted to play Champions League.

“But I think my cycle there is over and I want to take the next step to continue improving.”

The player reiterated his stance in a separate interview with Catalan newspaper L’Esportiu (via the Express).

“My goal is to go to the European Championship [with Spain] and it will be difficult for me if in the next six months I’m only playing in a smaller league, like the one in Croatia,” he said.

“I want to take a step forward. And not only to go to the Euro, but also to keep improving.

“It’s not that I’m being offered, it’s just that I’m ready to take a step forward in my career.

“They [Dinamo] are open to hearing offers and they have passed it to us.”
