Chelsea reach agreement to sign French forward
Chelsea have reached an agreement to sign Crystal Palace forward Michael Olise for around £34 million.
The Blues have been looking for a new attacker over the past couple of weeks following an injury to Christopher Nkunku.
Olise has been a top player on their radar, and RMC Sport confirm that they have agreed a deal with the Eagles for him.
The Blues have accepted to pay a fee lesser than his release clause and the 21-year-old has agreed personal terms with them.
Olise is currently in the treatment room with a hamstring injury, but that is unlikely to hamper his switch to west London.
Mauricio Pochettino's side have decided to go ahead with the transfer, and are prepared to stay patient over his recovery.
The Blues clearly believe he has the potential to become an elite forward in the future, having already shown glimpses.
Olise was one of the leading performers for Palace last term. He registered two goals and 11 assists in the top-flight.
