Liverpool decision is imminent as clock ticks down on £50m playmaker

Liverpool will make their decision on Dani Olmo in the next few days as the deadline for the player draws near.

The Mirror reports that Liverpool must make their ultimate decision on Dani Olmo within the next few days. The Spaniard is widely tipped to leave RB Leipzig this summer.

And that's largely because of a release clause in his contract. Olmo can leave for around £50m, with Leipzig unable to stop a transfer. That clause, however, expires 'next Monday' and the price will climb dramatically after that.

The 26-year-old could end up costing closer to £70m post-clause, so any team wanting to sign him must move fast. The fact that Olmo is part of a Spain squad that reached the Euro 2024 final has certainly complicated things, though. He's not exactly free to negotiate properly.

Liverpool are one of the club looking at Olmo, says the Mirror. This isn't exactly the first time we've seen this reported, with claims in Spain linking the Reds with a move dating back months.

They're thought to be one of the key rivals to Barcelona, who have long wanted their academy player back. But both sides are running out of time to get that done.

Liverpool to likely pass on Olmo

Liverpool are supposedly leaning towards not signing Olmo and letting the clause expire. The Mirror's report says they're 'unlikely' to make a move and that's not a huge shock.

£50m for Olmo is a lot of money and we're not entirely certain where he'd play. The Spaniard is best as a no.10 but we imagine that's Dominik Szoboszlai's role next season, at least for starters.

So even if £50m is a good price for Olmo, it's just too much for what Liverpool would actually get out of the deal. We fully expect that clause to expire without any sort of movement.
