The talented young French winger was one of Crystal Palace’s better players last term. He made 40 appearances in all competitions scoring two goals and registering 11 assists in those appearances.

Stats don’t tell the full story with the youngster. His dribbling ability and untapped potential make him a prime target for City and Chelsea.

It remains to be seen if Manchester City will bid for Olise’s services with Chelsea also in the race for the youngster.
