Tottenham Hotspur were heavily linked with a move for Dinamo Zagreb attacking midfielder Dani Olmo during the summer transfer window.

The North London club were interested in signing the 21-year-old last summer but refused to meet his £35.5 million valuation, according to ESPN.

Olmo has confirmed in an interview that his former club Barcelona have made an approach to bring him back to the Nou Camp.

The midfielder came through the ranks at the well respected La Masia academy where he spent seven years before making the move to Croatia in 2014.

Olmo has welcomed the opportunity to return to Spain to play for Barcelona and believes that his current club would receive a generous transfer fee.

He has not been far from the headlines since his impressive performances for his country at the European U21 Championships in Italy, scoring three times for Spain as they went on to lift the trophy.

Olmo told L’Esportie: “I am happy that the rumours have become a concrete proposal and that Barça is rethinking the possibility of returning home. I spent six years at La Masia and I was taught values ​​for life. Dinamo would get a good transfer and I would play in one of the biggest teams in the world, in one of the five best leagues.”
