• Manchester City is the thrid best goal-scoring team in the English Premier League
  • Man City boss Pep Guardiola reportedly wants to add more goalscorers
  • RB Leipzig's Dani Olmo is being mentioned as Guardiola's early bet

A former Barcelona Academy player could see himself joining a renowned English Premier League club.

Despite lacking natural strikers, Manchester City has managed to become one the top goal-scoring teams in the Premier League this season.

However, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola seems to be keen on bringing in more goalscorers, and among the names on his list is RB Leipzig’s Dani Olmo, per Calciomercato.

According to the report, Guardiola has long been a fan of Olmo and is now urging the Citizens to make a swoop for the Spain forward.

Meanwhile, RB Leipzig is still open to selling the player for the right price.

Despite the seemingly mutual interest, Manchester City will have to rival Manchester United and Barcelona in pursuing Olmo, the report added.

An earlier report said that Manchester United has been keeping tabs Olmo, having specifically scouted him in “many matches.”

It was also noted that the Red Devils were already tailing Olmo around two weeks after Cristiano Ronaldo made his return to Old Trafford.

Barcelona, meanwhile, is also fancying bringing back Olmo to Camp Nou. However, the club’s current financial woes will make it a bit difficult to launch a bid for the 23-year-old.

Though Manchester City and Manchester United have the advantage over Barcelona in terms of transfer budget, Olmo shockingly hinted at a possible return to Camp Nou.

“Barca will always have a special place in my heart,” Olmo said earlier this year. “It was a privilege to have played there. It is a point of reference for the rest of the football world and any child would give anything to play there, where so many greats have arrived and learned the trade.”

Olmo spent his formative years in the sport at Barca’s famed La Masia.

At the time, he wasn’t like other kids his age who were fascinated by the club’s legend Lionel Messi.

"I was eight years old. I was playing happily by myself with a ball, when someone—I think it was a friend of my dad’s—came over and told me, 'Hey, Dani, come here! You’re not going to believe this. You’re going to have your picture taken with Lionel Messi!'” he recalled. "Wow, Messi, right? In Castelldefels? What kid wouldn’t want their picture with him? Well, me! I was like, 'No, thanks. I’m good. I want to keep playing! It’s just a picture, right?'”
