The attacker would reportedly cost around €10million, with the Croatian side ready to cash in as they are fully aware that Olmo wants to move to a bigger club.
Olmo came through the ranks at Barcelona’s famous La Masia academy but opted to leave at a young age to pursue first-team football elsewhere.
Barca themselves have also kept a close eye on the player’s development and even tried to re-sign him, but the winger rejected the chance to return to the Nou Camp.
