In the current campaign, Olmo has so far featured in 20 games in all competitions for the Croatian club, scored 4 goals and provided 7 assists.

Last season, he mainly played on the left wing but this season, Zagreb has mostly utilized him in the No. 10 role behind the center forward.

As far as Liverpool are concerned, Klopp sold star playmaker Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona and as yet, the German boss has not replaced him.

The former Dortmund manager opted to sign Xherdan Shaqiri in the summer transfer window. The Swiss international has been effective for the Merseysiders so far but he is not as good as Coutinho and the club must splash the cash to replace the Brazilian in the upcoming winter transfer window.
