Liverpool are always on the lookout for the next best thing. The Reds have signed plenty of exciting young talents in recent summers and they could be set for more of the same at the end of the season. According to Eurosport, Liverpool have joined the race for Michael Olise.
Who is Michael Olise?
19-year-old attacking midfielder Michael Olise is currently starring for Reading in the Championship.
The teenager has been one of the stories of the season in the second tier.
He has bagged five goals and registered 10 assists for The Royals.
Making 31 stars and six appearances from the bench this term he has established himself as an undroppable member of the squad.
Liverpool join Michael Olise chase
This summer the youngster is expected to be snapped up by a top side.
According to The Athletic, the Reading man has a release clause of £8m.
Eurosport has reported that Liverpool are in the pack chasing Michael Olise but they face competition from Manchester City, Chelsea and RB Leipzig to name just a few clubs.
The report claims that a move for the youngster is expected this summer.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool signing Olise would be exciting.
He is full of potential and he suits the Reds perfectly.
Jürgen Klopp will be enticed by the youngster’s versatility: he’s played in five different positions for Reading this term.
At just £8m he could be a bargain signing but given the competition for his signature we could have a fight on our hands.
