According to The Mirror, Chelsea are set to move for Olise, who is also wanted by Man Utd, Arsenal, Newcastle and Liverpool.

On the other hand, as per an exclusive report published by FT, the Red Devils are leading the race to get the deal over the line.

The Magpies have prioritized the deal for the French winger but the player favors a move to Old Trafford.

It is reported that Olise’s current deal, which he signed last year, with the Eagles has a release clause of £59.8million (70 million euros).

The 22-year-old star only started fourteen games in the recently concluded Premier League campaign, scored ten goals and also provided six assists.

Olise normally features on the right flank and would be an ideal replacement for Man Utd flop, Antony, who only scored one goal in the league campaign.

Chelsea’s first choice right winger is Noni Madueke and the English winger scored eight goals and provided three assists in all competitions for the Blues.

Olise missed eighteen games in the PL due to hamstring concerns and his injury history must be kept in mind before signing him.
