Club chiefs have started to draw up a list of potential targets ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

And the Dail Mail claim Olmo is currently one to watch.

The attacking midfielder, who can also play as a winger, has a £52million release clause that becomes active this summer.

Some of Europe’s biggest clubs including Real Madrid, Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham are monitoring his progress ahead of a potential transfer battle at the end of the season.

Olmo has scored seven goals and provided four assists in 19 appearances for RB Leipzig this season.

He started the campaign with a hat-trick against Bayern Munich in the German Super Cup and has continued to impress.

The 25-year-old starred for Spain against Brazil on Tuesday and scored an impressive solo goal.

The match ended 3-3 following a late equaliser from Lucas Paqueta.

While Olmo is a key name on Man Utd’s transfer wishlist, manager Erik ten Hag also wants to sign a striker, centre-back and full-back this summer.
