Chelsea planning to trigger release clause of French winger
Chelsea are planning to trigger the release clause of Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise, according to Goal.com.
The west London giants have already signed Noni Madueke and Angelo to bolster the right wing this year, but the latter could be loaned out.
Olise has been identified as a potential target for the Blues, and they are prepared to trigger his buy-out clause depending on his fitness.
The Frenchman suffered a hamstring tear during the Under-21 Euros recently, and he is currently on the sidelines with no exact date of return.
The Blues have requested for more information on the player's situation, and based on that, they could make the final decision over him.
Aside from Mauricio Pochettino's side, Manchester City are also in the running to land the youngster, who was in Chelsea's academy.
The Cityzens are currently on the verge of losing Riyad Mahrez to Al Ahli and have identified the Palace ace as a potential replacement.
