Michael Olise’s release clause is estimated at £35million, according to a report by The Times, in news that could well alert Arsenal ahead of the summer.
Olise has established himself as one of the most exciting young talents in the Premier League. He earned a move to Crystal Palace with a stellar campaign with Reading, scoring seven goals and providing 12 assists in the Championship.
Palace reached an agreement by triggering an £8million release clause. And it was a deal that may have left a number of Premier League rivals wondering why they hadn’t done the same.
Arsenal may be among those kicking themselves. Reports claimed earlier this year that Arsenal wanted Olise not to sign him ahead of his move to Selhurst Park.
And it seems Palace are unable to stop Olise from leaving. The Times report that the 20-year-old will now have a release clause of just £35m.
Arsenal must act on Michael Olise release clause worth just £35m
Olise is still finding his way to the Premier League. He has made more appearances from the bench than in the starting lineup. And it may worry some that he has already been attached to a number of clubs, including Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea.
But there is absolutely no doubt that he is an incredible talent. Patrick Vieira described Olise as a “special” player. And he’s still managed to score four and provide nine assists in all competitions this season.
If he is available for £35million, Arsenal must act. This clearly has the potential to be an amazing deal.
And if the Gunners let the opportunity pass, someone else will certainly step in.
