Arsenal are one of several clubs to have inquired about Dinamo Zagreb midfielder, Dani Olmo, so we decided to check out what the fuss was about by speaking to some Croatian football experts.

Olmo has been in impressive form for Zagreb and, just as many top talents playing in Croatia before him, could soon be on the move.

According to CroSports, Arsenal, along with three other English clubs, have asked about the 19-year-old Spaniard.

CroSports told Daily Cannon that while Olmo is an exciting talent, he isn’t quite ready for a move to Arsenal just yet.

“Dinamo play a 4-3-2-1 and he’s played everywhere in that ‘3’,” CroSports told us.

“He has been very good this season. Probably Dinamo’s most consistent young player, if not player overall.

“Good shot, vision, dribbling, ability to play quick etc.

“He’s not ready for Arsenal yet, but definitely one for the future.”

They added that were he Croatian, there’d be a lot more hype surrounding his potential.

The Spaniard was named in the team of the season in Croatia before the winter break.

He has four goals and five assists in 19 appearances in all competitions.

Though he has featured predominantly on the left for Zagreb, he can also play on the right or as a number ten.

He’s said to possess a good shot, vision, agility, and the ability to link-up quickly with his teammates.

Olmo originally came through the ranks at Espanyol before joining Barcelona as a boy.

He made the move to Croatia when he was just 16.

He might not be ready to play for Arsenal right away, but it seems there interest isn’t misplaced.

Olmo is represented by the same firm that handles Wojciech Szczesny, Rob Holding, Kyle Bartley, Benik Afobe, and Ashley Cole, as well as Gareth Bale, Adam Lallana, Danny Drinkwater, Yacine Brahimi, Kieran Trippier, Luke Shaw, and many others.
