Tottenham are one of the clubs expressing interest in securing the signature of Crystal Palace’s Michael Olise.
That’s according to the latest report from HITC Football, which claim that Spurs have joined six other Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, Manchester City, and Liverpool, in the race to sign the highly-rated winger.
The report claims that representatives from seven English top-flight clubs, including Tottenham, have made inquiries about the player.
It is further said that the France U21 international does have a preference for staying in London, indicating an inclination towards joining clubs in the same region, however, that does not rule out moving elsewhere.
Chelsea were reportedly ready to trigger the release clause of the young forward for approximately £35 million in the summer. However, his new release clause is worth over £50m.
The 22-year-old, under contract with Crystal Palace until 2027 after a contract renewal in the summer, has showcased remarkable form under manager Roy Hodgson.
Despite being sidelined for nearly five months due to a hamstring injury earlier in the season, Olise has contributed 5 goals and an assist in his nine league appearances. And in 80 appearances across all competitions for Palace, he has scored 11 goals and assisted 20.
He has the potential to flourish further under Ange Postecoglou’s system, which grants attackers greater creative freedom in the final third.
However, Tottenham are going to face stiff competition from other Premier League rivals as well as some of the big clubs from Europe to secure this deal.
