Report: Arsenal target Michael Olise's release clause worth £35m
Michael Olise’s release clause is thought to be worth £35 million, according to a report from The Times, in news that may 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 brilliant campaign with Reading, scoring seven and providing 12 assists in the Championship.
Palace got a deal done by triggering an £8 million release clause. And that was a piece of business that may have left a number of Premier League rivals wondering why they did not do the same.
Arsenal are perhaps one of those kicking themselves. Reports claimed earlier this year that Arsenal want Olise having failed to sign him before his move to Selhurst Park.
And it seems that Palace may be unable to stop Olise leaving. The Times reports that the 20-year-old is thought to now have a release clause of just £35 million.
Arsenal must act with Michael Olise’s release clause worth just £35m
Olise is still finding his way in the Premier League. He has made more appearances from the bench than the starting lineup. And it may concern some that he has already been attached to a number of clubs, including Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea.
But there is absolutely no question that he is an unbelievable talent. Patrick Vieira described Olise as a ‘special‘ player. And he has still managed to score four and provide nine assists in all competitions this season.
If he is available for £35 million, Arsenal must act. That clearly has the potential to be an incredible bargain.
And if the Gunners let the opportunity pass them by, someone else will definitely step up.
