Manchester United, Chelsea, Newcastle United and Bayern Munich all have contacted to sign Michael Olise in the summer transfer window. But it looks like, the Blues are leading the race to sign the 22-year-old. After Chelsea confirmed the signing of Tosin Adarabioyo from their fellow West London Club Fulham on a free transfer, they are eager to sign Olise from their other London club Crystal Palace.

Chelsea recently appointed former Leicester City boss Enzo Maresca on a five-year deal as their new head coach for the upcoming season. The Italian had one season with Leicester City. With the help of Maresca, Leicester wins the championship with 97 points and returns to premier league football. The Blues are eager to make more squad depth under Maresa after their sixth-place finish in the premier league last season.

Michael Olise To Chelsea

Michael Olise has a release clause of 60M in his contract, which runs until 2027. So, the Blues need to do is to pay the 60M release clause and convince Michael Olise to join Chelsea. Last year, Olise was on his way to join Chelsea. At the last moment the frenchman shocked everyone when he signed a new four-year contract at Crystal Palace instead. But this time around the blues are confident to seal the deal of Michael Olise. The Blues believed Olise would add more threat to the attacking options. The Frenchman could join the Blues this summer despite having three years left in his contract.

Olise’s Performance In The Premier League

Michael Olise joined the Eagles in 2021 from Reading. Since then, the Frenchman made 90 appearances for Crystal Palace. Last season the 22-year-old had a remarkable season, scoring 10 goals and registering 6 assists in 19 matches. In the last premier league campaign, Olise had a goal involvement every 79.8 minutes. That is the second-best productivity rate in the division just after Chelsea’s Cole Palmer. The Crystal Palace winger had the second-best expected assists per 90 minutes in the Premier League last season just after Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne. Olise’s outstanding performance keeps him in France’s preliminary squad for the 2024 Olympic games in Paris.

Michael Olise is wanted by major Premier League giants and European heavyweights. Manchester United, Arsenal, Newcastle United, Bayern Munich, and Newcastle United all are interested in having this young Frenchman in their squad. But Micael Olise is happy to join Chelsea instead of other clubs. However, Olise could choose to stay at Palace, and give more time to his career before joining big clubs.
