Tottenham Hotspur are not interested in signing the Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Dani Olmo despite reports suggesting otherwise, according to Football.London.

Spurs are looking to be very active in the transfer market over the remaining month of the window, both to make up for the lack of activity recently, and also to prepare for the potential departures of Toby Alderweireld, Christian Eriksen and even Kieran Trippier.

One area Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been keen to strengthen for a prolonged period is the creative element to his midfield, and it was understood that to help with that quest Dani Olmo was a target.

The Spanish ace shot to prominence recently when representing his country in the UEFA European under-21 Championship out in Italy, where he gave a good account of himself and appeared to have caught the eye of the Spurs backroom staff.

There was even a suggestion among reports in Spain that Tottenham were ready to launch a €25 million (£22 million) offer for the talented playmaker, although it now seems that was false.

That is because Pochettino, who has already smashed the Spurs record transfer to sign Tanguy Ndombele this summer, as well as snapping up the Leeds United youngster Jack Clarke, who he immediately loaned back to Elland Road, is still chasing Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso, who has now finished his duties in the Copa America.

Tottenham are still expected to be very active in the market before the window closes, and are said to have plenty of targets lined up to attempt to bring to London, although Olmo is not understood to be one of them.
