Paris Saint-Germain keen on Crystal Palace young winger Michael Olise

Over the past couple of weeks, there has been intense speculation over the future of Michael Olise at Selhurst Park.

According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Paris Saint-Germain are keen on Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise.

The France international joined Crystal Palace from Reading for a fee in the region of 9.3 million euros in July 2021. His contract expires in the summer of 2026.

The winger has found the back of the net on one occasion and picked up four assists in 18 matches for Crystal Palace this season across various competitions.

He has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in France. Olise has represented France at Under-18 and Under-21 level, winning four caps.

His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.

Paris Saint-Germain are looking to sign a winger and have identified the 21-year-old as potential transfer target. They have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.

Christophe Galtier is a long term admirer of Olise and believes he can get the most out of the France international.

The Red and Blues are desperate to make an impact in the winter transfer window.

The former Reading man will add a new dimension to Paris Saint-Germain’s attack. His arrival would give Paris Saint-Germain some much needed tactical flexibility.

According to the report, “Paris Saint-Germain are interested in a shock move for Crystal Palace star Michael Olise. The 21-year-old has impressed with the Eagles this season and the French side are keen on the young winger as they plan for the future. A potential transfer could see Olise play alongside the likes of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar. PSG are supposedly monitoring his performances, claim the Daily Mail. If PSG do make the reported shock move, they would be able to offer Olise the chance to play Champions League football. It is unclear how much the Ligue 1 champions would be willing to spend on him but the player has a reported £50million release clause and a contract that runs until 2026.”

PSG have to fork out a huge transfer fee if they are genuinely interested in the France international.

The Eagles are preparing to sell their winger should they receive a massive offer for him.

Good signing for Paris Saint-Germain?

If Paris Saint-Germain and Galtier are seriously considering a winger, Olise could also prove to be a smart option.

It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.

All in all, Olise will be an ideal choice for Galtier as he ticks all the right boxes in terms of what he demands from his attackers.

How strong that interest is and whether PSG will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
