Liverpool & Leeds linked with Michael Olise

A recent report in the English media has credited two Premier League clubs with an interest in Reading midfielder Michael Olise.

Who is Michael Olise?

Olise has been on Reading’s books since 2015, after joining the club’s youth ranks from Chelsea.

The youngster, who turned 19 earlier this month, began to earn regular first-team football with the Royals last season, notching 19 Championship appearances.

And Olise has since gone from strength to strength this season, cementing himself as an integral member of Veljko Paunović’s midfield.

All told, the Frenchman has featured 20 times in the league this season, notching four goals and seven assists along the way.

Olise is an attacking midfielder by trade, but is also more than capable of lining out on either wing, having done so on several occasions already in 2020/21.

Olise attracting interest from Premier League sides, including Liverpool & Leeds

And now, despite his tender years, Olise is seemingly attracting interest from some top clubs.

As per a recent report from Football Insider, Reading are likely to sell their gifted young talent in January, amid strong interest in his services.

Amongst the teen’s suitors, meanwhile, are said to be Premier League outfits Liverpool and Leeds United.

Olise’s current contract runs until 2022, with is claimed that the deal includes an £8m release clause.

Reading, in turn, are keen to extend the midfielder’s terms, upping his buy-out clause in the process, but are also braced for the genuine possibility that Olise will end up making the move to one of his top-flight suitors.

The report from Football Insider also credits all of Arsenal, Wolves and Crystal Palace with an interest in the Reading standout.
