Chelsea’s crazy spending set to continue as they near agreement over potential £45m transfer

Posted by

Chelsea’s crazy spending in the transfer market is reportedly set to continue as they near an agreement over Crystal Palace star Michael Olise.

The Blues are close to agreeing personal terms with Olise and hope to sign the 21-year-old Frenchman for a deal worth around £45million, according to the Evening Standard.

Olise has impressed in his time at Selhurst Park and it would be intriguing to see him make the step up to a club like Chelsea, even if competition is likely to be pretty fierce in this squad so full of new signings under Todd Boehly’s ownership.

Chelsea also look to have more or less wrapped up a deal for Moises Caicedo, according to Fabrizio Romano, while the Evening Standard’s report also states that they’re in advanced talks over Southampton’s Romeo Lavia.

Michael Olise to Chelsea?

Olise would be another fine addition to this Chelsea squad, with new manager Mauricio Pochettino certainly being given plenty of backing in the transfer market since taking over at Stamford Bridge.

This follows a long list of departures this summer as big names like Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Cesar Azpilicueta and Edouard Mendy have all left the club.

  1. It is against all the rules to talk terms with players without parent clubs permission. Please stop making things up and thirsting after our players

    1. Absolutely right. The player is injured so isn’t available to play anyway! Palace will not want to sell him this summer after already losing Wilf.

  2. Olise has a release clause – so as long as a club meets that amount, it doesn’t matter if the club want to sell him or not

    Get a clue!

    1. The clause says he has to be informed by the club if offer made. No offer made so they can’t talk. Now shut up

  3. It’s a crazy situation with Chelsea trying to buy pretty much every player who might be available. It’s about time the FA stepped in to put a stop to this madness. All Palace need to do is refuse to sell Olise or put the price up to £100m to thwart any further bid.

  4. The clause states that if offer made he has to be informed. It is that simple. No offer made so I call bullshit.

  5. You actually are the crazy one, Chelsea got a player your Liverpool help inflate the price. But your biased write up gives you out as what you are .

  6. This crazy spending is spoiling football. How clever is a team that just buys any player they fancy. It destroys the pyramid principle and kills the romantic idea of teams like Leicester winning anything. I hope Palace price Olise at £115 and tell Chelsea/City to get stuffed.

  7. It’s only a situation clubs are trying to manage…I don’t see any reason why a club cannot trigger a fee on a player with a clause on it(injured or not)…it’s a new season and all clubs are trying to fill their assumed holes in their squad.chelsea signing a players like caiceido now lavia and olise is a huge statement on the league itself…

  8. Can someone tell me how many players Chelsea let out in the course of the current transfer window then compare that to the number of players coming in to the team?
