Arsenal ‘join race for Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise’

Arsenal are reportedly set to rival a number of top Premier League clubs in the race to sign Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise.

The 22-year-old has developed into a star player for the Eagles since joining the club from Reading in 2021, scoring 11 goals and registering 20 assists in 80 appearances across all competitions.

Olise scored twice and provided 11 assists in 37 Premier League games last season, before missing the first few months of this campaign due to injury, but he has since made an impressive return to Roy Hodgson’s side, chipping in with five goals in nine top-flight fixtures.

The France Under-21 international attracted plenty of interest from Chelsea last summer, but he decided to commit his future to Palace in August by signing a new four-year contract that runs until 2027.

However, Olise’s new contract is said to feature a release clause worth more than £50 million, and speculation of a big-money exit from Selhurst Park has been widespread in recent weeks.

Manchester United are thought to have identified Olise as a potential target this summer, while some top officials at the club are said to be hesitant about a future move for the winger.

Chelsea reportedly remains interested in Olise, while Liverpool and Premier League leaders Manchester City are rumored to be keeping an eye on the youngster’s performances at Palace.

A new name has since entered the fight, with talkSPORT claiming that Arsenal has been notified to Olise’s new release clause and is ready to compete with their Premier League rivals for his services.

Olise joined Arsenal’s development academy in 2009 before moving on to Chelsea, Manchester City, and Reading, where he made his professional debut.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is expected to enhance his offensive options this year, but it appears that adding a new centre-forward is a higher priority for the club than signing a new winger.

Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah, meanwhile, have primarily played up front, with the latter receiving the majority of his first-team minutes while the former has been sidelined due to injury

Arsenal have lacked a clinical edge in the final third in recent months, prompting talk that the Gunners may spend heavily on a new striker, with Brentford’s Ivan Toney, Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, and Al Ittihad’s Karim Benzema all said to be high on their list of targets.
