Transfer: Olise eager to move to Stamford Bridge as Chelsea, Man City battle for Palace star

Young attacker Michael Olise from Crystal Palace may be the most recent youngster to join Mauricio Pochettino’s squad this summer.

According to RMC Sports, the Blues have made a £39 million approach for Olise, who is a rising star for Crystal Palace and is reportedly eager to transfer.

However, Manchester City, who sees the winger as a potential replacement for Riyad Mahrez, who has agreed to a transfer to the Saudi Pro League, may challenge Chelsea.

After agreeing to a £34.7 million transfer to Saudi Pro League team Al-Ahli, Mahrez is expected to leave the Etihad.

According to RMC Sports in France, the midfielder has not only accepted a bid from Chelsea but has also been’seduced by the project’ at the west London club.

The underappreciated 21-year-old has seen a remarkable rise since moving to Crystal Palace from Reading for £8 million just two years ago.

He had two goals last season, including a spectacular free kick against Manchester United, but more importantly, he had 11 assists.
