RB Leipzig star Dani Olmo opened up some eyes globally with his play for Spain in the European Championships, but Bundesliga fans were already well aware of the talent that the 23-year-old holds.

One club that might be willing to make a move to acquire that talent is Bayern Munich — per Italian journalist Rudy Galetti. In a tweet, Galetti stated that Olmo is being eyed by several top clubs, including the Bavarians.

What makes the prospect of Olmo joining Bayern Munich a little more tangible than some other clubs is that Olmo’s former boss — Julian Nagelsmann — is now at the helm of the German giants:

Olmo, who is currently valued at €45 million by Transfermarkt, is certainly too expensive for Bayern Munich to chase during this window. With a contract ending in 2024, however, Bayern Munich could be in a position to bid on the versatile Spaniard next summer.

Olmo, who has recently been linked to Real Madrid, can play as an attacking midfielder or at either wing position. Nagelsmann values that type of versatility for his roster and his familiarity with Olmo could make things very interesting next summer.
