Chelsea return for Premier League youngster as Bayern Munich, Arsenal, others circle

February 22nd, 2022 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

There are reports that Crystal Palace are facing a fight to keep Michael Olise this summer.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Lille and Bayern Munich are among those keeping tabs on the exciting 20-year-old Eagle.

Palace pulled off a coup by pipping a number of bigger Prem and European clubs to sign him from Reading in an £8million deal in July.

But the south Londoners are already staring at the prospect of losing him in the next window following his increasingly impressive displays for them this season.

The Hammersmith-born rookie has made just 18 top flight appearances, with 12 of those as a sub.

But the way he has settled seamlessly into Premier League football has kept him on the radar of a number of clubs at home and abroad.

His latest eye-catching performance came in Palace’s 1-0 home defeat to Chelsea on Saturday.

The reigning European and world champions were among several clubs interested in signing him before Palace swooped last summer.

The Eagles had hoped their capture of Olise would have cooled interest in him. But the France Under-18 international’s rise has resulted in even more clubs courting him.
