RB Leipzig is reportedly making one final push to keep Dani Olmo at the club after Tottenham Hotspur expressed their interest in the Spanish midfielder. According to Sky Sports Germany, the German club is planning to offer Olmo an improved financial deal before conceding and considering a transfer in the summer.
Last week, reports emerged that Tottenham had made contact with Olmo’s agents about a potential move in the summer, with a potential €40m deal on the table. Sky Sports Germany notes that RB Leipzig has been attempting to extend Olmo’s current contract since the first half of the season, with a final decision set to be made at the end of the campaign.
Max Eberl, the club’s sporting managing director, is keen on keeping Olmo beyond his current deal, which expires in 2024. RB Leipzig is reportedly “going all in” and will improve their financial offer one last time, stretching their own “monetary limits” to persuade the midfielder to stay. However, if they fail to convince Olmo, a free transfer in 2024 has been ruled out, and the club will either raise his release clause to €70m or sell him this summer for a “realistic” fee of €30m.
Furthermore, there is a possibility that RB Leipzig will offer Olmo a new deal with a €70m release clause and a second exit clause at a lower price for Spanish clubs. This move would demonstrate the club’s desire to keep him.
Eberl is hoping for clarity before the end of the season, and the club is determined to do everything possible to keep Olmo. If they fail to do so, Tottenham Hotspur is likely to be among the clubs interested in signing the Spanish midfielder.
