Chelsea are set to sign France Under-21 winger Michael Olise from Crystal Palace in a £35 million deal.
The 21-year-old Olise has been a standout player for Palace since joining the club from Reading in 2021. He scored two goals and provided 11 assists in 37 Premier League appearances last season, and was named the Eagles’ player of the year.
Olise is a versatile player who can play on either wing or as a number 10. He is known for his dribbling skills, creativity, and passing ability. He is also a good goalscorer, with a powerful shot from distance.
Chelsea have been looking to add creativity to their attack this summer, and Olise fits the bill perfectly. He is the type of player who can create chances out of nothing, and he will add a new dimension to Thomas Tuchel’s side.
The deal is expected to be completed in the coming days, and Olise will become Chelsea’s ninth signing of the summer. He joins a star-studded squad that includes Romelu Lukaku, Raheem Sterling, and Jules Kounde.
Olise’s arrival is a major coup for Chelsea, and it shows their ambition to challenge for the Premier League title this season. He is a young, talented player with a bright future, and he is sure to be a hit with the Chelsea fans.
