ARSENAL are interested in signing talented Crystal Palace man Michael Olise this summer.
The season is over and although the Gunners have finished the season without any silverware – there will be Champions League football for the club next season.
that means that Mikel Arteta will want Edu to sign a number of players that will add some depth and quality to the side – and Olise is a man that is rpeortedly on the agenda for the Spanish boss.
The winger has been in electrifying form throughout the campaign, becoming the first-ever Palace player to record double digits for assists in an individual Premier League season.
According to Fichajes, The Gunners believe that Olise has the perfect skillset to play for the club as an understudy to Bukayo Saka.
The 21-year old will be available for a fee of around £35 million with Manchester City also competing for his signature.
His performances for Palace this season led to his team-mates voting him the Players’ Player of the Season
Presented with the award by teammate Ebere Eze at Clapham Grand, Olise added: “This award is special because I train with these guys every day and I work with them, so I’m grateful to them.”
Everyone can see that Olise is a brilliantly gifted winger and has a bright future in the game. He is just the type of player that Arteta would love to add to the squad.
However – to back-up to Bukayo Saka means that he would not play as much as he is now – and that could scupper his development.
Saka pretty much plays every week for Arsenal – so even though ARSENAL are a massive club – it may not be the right move for Olise to make at this stage of his career.
