Olise plans Palace stay despite Arsenal interest

Nigeria-eligible attacking Midfielder/winger Micheal Olise is planning to spend at least another season at Crystal Palace despite reported interest from Arsenal FC.

According to The Sun UK, Olise is not in a rush to make a move away from the Selhurst Park outfit and would instead prefer to get valuable experience via another season.

The French U-21 star who is eligible to represent either France, Nigeria or England at full international level has caught the attention of top European clubs with his performances this season.

Micheal Olise will prefer a Palace stay to get more experience and consistency

Olise has ten goal involvements to his name for the Eagles who are currently enjoying a three game winning streak under new manager Roy Hodgson.

With Wilfred Zaha`s contract winding down this summer, there is a feeling he will leave and so holding on to Olise will be huge for Crystal Palace.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is a big fan of Olise, and Arsenal are interested in signing the winger this summer.

According to the reports in London, Palace value the youngster at £40m but will not force him out for financial gains.

For Arsenal, the plan is to have Micheal Olise as a backup to another player with Nigerian roots Bukayo Saka.

With Premier League safety secured at Selhurst Park following this weekend`s 0-2 win at Southampton, the attacking midfielder is expected to stay a club he has started 24 of their 31 Premier League matches this season.
