After £39m Disasi deal, ‘we are proud’ Chelsea have now won the race to sign ‘quality’ player
According to 90min, Chelsea believes they have won the race to sign Michael Olise from Crystal Palace after already securing the signing of Axel Disasi from Monaco for €45m (£39m).
Reports suggest that Chelsea is seriously interested in the 21-year-old Crystal Palace midfielder, and they are close to agreeing on personal terms with him.
Chelsea’s strong relationship with Olise’s family, as he spent several years in their academy and his younger brother Richard is currently in the club’s youth ranks, is believed to be a decisive factor in the transfer battle against Manchester City and Arsenal.
The France Under-21 international is rumored to have a release clause in his contract at Crystal Palace, and Chelsea is said to be able to sign him for just £35m.
Olise is highly regarded for his talent, and his impressive performance in the Premier League last season included 11 assists and 2 goals. Chelsea views him as a potential signing of the summer, even if they were to pay up to £60m for him.
As the transfer window progresses, the situation may evolve, so it remains to be seen how this deal will unfold.
