Chelsea and Newcastle approach Palace over signing Olise

Chelsea and Newcastle have approached Crystal Palace about signing Michael Olise.

Chelsea are aware of the interest from other clubs but hold a long-term interest in the forward and are keen to make him one of Enzo Maresca's first signings.
Olise's current Palace deal runs until 2027 after he signed a new four-year contract last summer although he has a release clause thought to be in the region of £60m.

The 22-year-old joined Palace in 2021 from Reading and has scored 16 goals and produced 25 assists in all competitions.

Olise scored 10 goals in 19 appearances last season, his best return despite missing 18 games due to injury, flourishing under new boss Oliver Glasner.
