Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise has reportedly made up his mind to leave The Eagles in the summer putting several Premier League clubs on high alert.
According to HITC the 22-year-old has made up his mind to depart Crystal Palace at the end of the season and he's aware that he could potentially have his pick of where to go with several Premier League sides including Newcastle United interested in his services.
The report claims that Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United and Chelsea have all reached out to Olise's representatives in anticipation which hints that there could be a fierce bidding war brewing for the summer.
Newcastle should be in a far better financial position by then and therefore should be in the mix for his signature.
Olise has made just nine appearances for Palace this season but he's already managed five goals and an assist which, let's be honest, sets him apart from Miguel Almiron by quite a bit. He missed the first 11 games with a hamstring injury but has come back firing on all cylinders bagging a brace last time out against Brentford.
As we've already said, he's definitely an upgrade on Miggy and at 22, he still has room to grow and improve.
Olise would be a fantastic signing for Newcastle, but the competition is going to be unreal so if we are serious about a move, we're going to have to fight.
Would it be too cheeky to ask Palace if they fancy chucking in Eberechi Eze in there too? They work so well together and it would be a shame to separate them.
Here we are again though, in January and having to focus on potential summer transfers. Man, this is so painful.
