Dani Olmo enjoyed 30 minutes from the bench as Spain comfortably beat Croatia 3-0 in their Euro 2024 opener as Liverpool transfer officials watched on.

Or at least, that’s what reports are suggesting. They claim the Reds are taking an interest in the RB Leipzig playmaker, who can play on either wing and even at number ten.

Liverpool have been tipped to search for a new winger this summer, mindful that Mohamed Salah is in the final year of his contract and might not pen a renewal. If a pursuit of Olmo is launched, Liverpool may have competition for him.

Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester United have all been linked but it is thought Liverpool would have a march on them all. He is being touted as a £50m-plus acquisition, which may give Liverpool food for thought.

Speaking earlier this month, the 26-year-old discussed his future amid bubbling transfer talk, stating that he “will see” what happens after the Euros. Olmo told Mundo Deportivo: "I am calm and focused on what is coming, which is the Euro Cup, which is no small thing.

“It is clear that it is good to see your name related to great teams in Europe and the world, that motivates me, but I am focused on the Euro and I hope we can return with the trophy. Then we'll see.

"It's nice to see your name related to the greats, but I insist, it's nothing that bothers me. I am focused on the field and then whatever has to be, will be."

And speaking back in January, Olmo indicated that his future was not set in stone. He made reference to Barcelona, one of the clubs said to be interested in his signature.

He told German outlet BILD at the time: "Things happen so fast in football, things can change all the time. I have my adviser who takes care of it. Me? I only focus on football.

"I want to go back to Spain someday, it would be great. It is my country, my league. My family and friends live there. But I am not only tied to Spain.

"The most important thing for me is to play in a club where I feel loved and important. Like here in Leipzig.

"I played for Barcelona for six years when I was young. It will always be a home for me. A lot of my friends from the national team play there."
