Michael Olise is the subject of interest from a number of the Premier League’s biggest clubs, with Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal all touted as possible destinations for him in the summer.

The 22-year-old was heavily linked with a move away from Selhurst Park last summer but instead signed a new contract with the Eagles, warding off interest from Manchester City and Chelsea at the time.

However, just 12 months into that four-year deal there is no shortage of interest in him and bids are expected to come in over the summer.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano told Caught Offside that Manchester United and Chelsea are now the likeliest candidates to move for Olise, although Arsenal may also try and snap up the France Under-21 international.

The Evening Standard reported last year that a release clause will come into play in the winger’s contract this summer, although the exact figure of the clause is unknown.

Olise had a clause allowing him to leave for just £35m in his previous contract and the new figure is ‘significantly higher’ than that.

The former Reading star is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury and has been plagued with fitness injuries over the season.

He has made just 11 Premier League appearances, only eight of which came in a starting line-up, although he has managed to score six goal in that time.

It is likely to be a big summer for Crystal Palace in the transfer market as they try and keep hold of their best players.

Marc Guehi is also expected to be the subject of offers from the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United, according to The Telegraph.

Eberchi Eze will also attract interest but Palace will be desperate not to lose both him and Olise in the same transfer window.
