RB Leipzig have completed the signing of Dani Olmo from Dinamo Zagreb, the club have announced.

The Spanish winger, 21, makes the move to Germany with immediate effect after penning a contract until 2024.


"RB Leipzig are a young, attractive club that really convinced me with their philosophy to develop and put their trust in young talents. I hope to bring my own strengths to the table to help the club continue their successful journey," said Olmo in a statement.

According to reports, 'Die Roten Bullen' saw off competition from the likes of Atlético Madrid, Barcelona, Bayer Leverkusen and Hertha BSC to land Olmo.

"We're delighted to have convinced Dani Olmo to join us despite a lot of interest from top clubs. He's a very skilled player - both brilliant technically and deadly in front of goal. He gives the team more versatility and quality," said RB Leipzig sporting director Markus Krösche.

Olmo has made 22 appearances for Dinamo Zagreb this season, scoring eight goals and making seven assists.
