Will Michael Olise play for Nigeria or not? By the time you’re done pondering that poser, the young exciting talent could be close to securing a move to the Premier League – may be an England call up!
Olise is on the wishlist of Crystal Palace and new Manager Patrick Vieira welcomes the idea of having the midfielder.
The 19 year-old was almost unplayable last season for Reading – 7 goals, 46 league appearances – but has one year left on his deal.
Palace were linked to the youngster in a report on the Athletic by Matt Woosnam :
#CPFC set to sign Michael Olise from Reading as they start the overhaul of their squad this summer. Have tracked the 19-year-old for some time, and were keen in January, but now look to have secured his signing. https://t.co/3EudCZzwsn
Interestingly, the player, who is valued at €15 million, has a £8 million release clause that was triggered by the Eagles.
Per Jonathan Low, On the Olise reports – I’ve been told by a good source Crystal Palace have activated an £8m release clause and paid it. Guess it’s now up to the player if he agrees to move there… #readingfc #cpfc
So, should the move have, Olise will likely play alongside Ivory Coast’s Wilfried Zaha and another Nigeria FA target Eberechi Eze at least in the new season.
