There is news that Chelsea has inquired about signing Crystal Palace ace Michael Olise. Reporter Fabricio Romano, who is well versed in European soccer news, said that on June 13, 2024, Chelsea contacted Palace and asked for details about Olise’s release clause. Chelsea reportedly requested permission to speak to the player. Born in 2001, Olise progressed through the youth ranks at Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester City before growing up at Reading. The team where he made his professional debut is also Reading. He was called up to the first team for the first time in the 2018-19 season, and began receiving opportunities little by little from the 2019-20 season. The 2020-21 season is when his talent truly blossomed. At that time, Olise took a leap forward as a starting player, scoring 7 goals and providing 12 assists, and began to receive attention from Premier League (PL) clubs.

Crystal Palace sign Olise

In the end, Palace signed Olise.
He is also showing a decent performance on the PL stage.

Olise was highly anticipated as he scored 2 goals and 5 assists in 26 games as a starter and substitute in his first season after moving to Palace.
He was appointed as a starter last season and appeared in 37 games, recording 2 goals and 11 assists, the most assists in the team (2nd place, Eberechi Eze – 4).

This season, his skills were even more in full bloom.
Except for the time he was out of the game due to a hamstring injury in the early and mid-season, Olise performed perfectly every time he appeared.

Olise scored 10 goals and 6 assists in 19 league games, scoring double digits despite playing only a short amount of time.
He is an opposite foot winger.

Advantages of Michael Olise

Olise, who mainly uses his left foot, usually plays as a right wing forward.
He has good ball-handling skills and is the type of wing forward who can move forward with the ball.

He also drives the ball forward to the center and delivers killer passes to infiltrating teammates.
He also shows calmness at the gate.

Chelsea plans to recruit numerous players this summer.
Chelsea has already set up a negotiating table with Aston Villa’s John Duran.

If Olise is also recruited, it can be interpreted as a sign that there will be a big change in the offensive line.
There is a release clause.

Britain’s ‘The Athletic’ explained, “He is believed to have a release clause of 60 million pounds (about 105.5 billion won) and may include a higher release clause.”
