Dani Olmo fits in perfectly at RB Leipzig, says the club's sporting director, Markus Krösche.

Speaking at Olmo's official presentation at RB Leipzig following his recent move from Dinamo Zagreb, Krösche talked about his huge expectations for the 21-year-old.

"Dani is capable of making the difference. He's hungry for success and is a perfect fit for RB Leipzig. It's a great sign that a player with such high potential chose to come here when there were so many options," Krösche said, as quoted by the club.

Olmo reportedly turned down interest from the likes of FC Barcelona and Atlético Madrid to come to the Bundesliga.

"I've been attracted to the Bundesliga for a long time. It's now all about integrating quickly into the team, showing what I can do in training and helping the team. There's a lot of work ahead and I'm ready for it," Olmo said at today's press conference.

The Spanish offensive midfielder made 124 appearances for Dinamo Zagreb, racking up 34 goals and 28 assists.
