Chelsea make verbal offer to sign French winger
Chelsea have made an opening offer to sign Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise in the current transfer window.
The west London giants are aiming to strengthen the right wing department in the coming weeks and Olise is a top target for them.
The Frenchman is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury, but the Blues are still keen on striking an agreement with Palace.
It is now reported by RMC Sport that they have made a verbal proposal of £26m for Olise which is likely to be turned down.
Olise is currently as a key player for the Eagles. The south London side are reluctant to lose him for less than his £35m release clause.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are not alone in the pursuit of Olise. Manchester City are also keeping a close eye on the talented wideman.
The Cityzens recently sold Riyad Mahrez to Al Ahli and they are lining up an approach for Olise. They could make a proposal soon.
