The transfer machine in European football continues to flourish and this time it’s Chelsea that’s on everyone’s lips. According to the latest reports from RMC Sport, the London club are a step away from securing a new reinforcement for their attacking side in Michael Olise, the talented 21-year-old French winger.
The Crystal Palace, current team of Olise, is the focus of this story. Chelsea, who are looking to strengthen their squad for next season, have sent the club a verbal offer to take on the youngster’s services. However, they are not alone in this race as Manchester City have also shown interest in the French player.
Chelsea are close to signing a new signing for their attack
Last season, Michael Olise made a lasting impression in the Premier League, notable for his ability to score and provide assists. In 40 appearances for Crystal Palace, he has contributed two goals and 11 assists, which has not gone unnoticed by elite English clubs.
Both Chelsea and Manchester City regard Olise as a valuable asset for the future and negotiations have intensified in recent weeks. According to RMC Sport reporter Fabrice Hawkins, Chelsea have made a verbal offer of around €30m for the France winger. Although it has not yet been formalized due to recent injury concerns, the club are said to have already reached a personal agreement with the player.
Olise’s termination clause has been set at £35m, as confirmed by renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano. Crystal Palace could consider turning down Chelsea’s initial offer, especially if Olise’s injury raises questions. However, negotiations are expected to continue and the London club can increase their offer once the French winger’s physical condition is clear.
Amid the excitement of the transfer dance, Chelsea fans are eagerly awaiting the outcome of this story as the club work tirelessly to strengthen their squad for further success in the upcoming season.
