Michael Olise is now expected to miss the start of the 2023/24 season.
Paul Brown talked to GIVEMESPORT that Chelsea are ‘definitely interested’ in Crystal Palace’s gifted Michael Olise. The London-born star could get priority.
Olise’s £35m release clause in his contract means those in line to scoop the player up can do for a low fee, at least in the modern market.
Fabrizio Romano also reported that both Chelsea and Manchester City are in conversation to sign the 21-year-old. Both clubs are waiting patiently for some clarity following the injury he picked up in June.
Michael Olise is now expected to miss the start of the 2023/24 season after suffering a torn hamstring. Clubs will be hesitant to fork out £35m for a player that is firstly unable to partake in pre-season.
While talking to GIVEMESPORT, Paul Brown said: “Chelsea are definitely interested in Michael Olise, and I can see why. His statistics improved massively at Palace last season and I think he’s become much more productive. Obviously, he’s chasing more international honours as well. I think there’s a really good player there, who, with the right kind of nurturing could become a really top performer.”
Moises Caicedo is next on the shopping list for Chelsea.
