Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise has a £35m buyout fee in his contract, according to reports in the English media.
There are some question marks over whether the release clause can only be triggered if the Eagles are relegated but Arsenal fans on Twitter believe the France Under 21 international would be a good addition to the squad:
Sell pepe and sign him

A better deal than 75m for Diaby.

If it’s true, we should get him. Him and Saka should fight for the shirt

It was reported back in February that the Gunners, along with Chelsea, Everton, Lille and Bayern Munich were keeping tabs on Olise and the reports of a release clause will only increase interest in the player.
Despite only arriving from Championship side Reading last summer, Olise has already impressed many with his performances for Palace, racking up four goals and nine assists in 31 appearances.
With Arsenal expected to offload Nicolas Pepe this summer, Arsenal may well be looking to give Bukayo Saka some competition on the right flank, and Olise is definitely an option worth considering.
