The Rossoneri want to increase their squad as they aim to compete with the biggest teams in Europe.
Italian Serie A champions AC Milan have identified Crystal Palace midfielder Michael Olise as a transfer target when the transfer window opens next summer.
The Serie A giants are looking for quality youngsters who can improve their squad and have identified Olise as one of their options.
AC Milan wants fresh blood Olise
Olise is one of the highest rated youngsters in the English Premier League, having joined the Eagles from Reading last year. The 21-year-old has played ten times for Patrick Vieira’s team this season, recording two assists.
The youngster’s performances over the past two years have not gone unnoticed, and AC Milan are ready to make their move for his services.
According to Calciomercato, the Rossoneri are looking for a right midfielder and have identified Olise as a possible solution.
Olise’s quality matches Milan’s demands
Although Olise is versatile to play in any part of the final time, he mainly plays as a right midfielder. However, AC Milan will likely face a battle to sign the youngster as he is one of Palace’s valuable assets.
The Eagles see Olise as a vital part of their project and won’t let him go easily. Furthermore, the Rossoneri will have to pay the most if they can convince the Eagles to sell, as Olise still has four years left on his contract at Selhurst Park.
Meanwhile, England, France and Nigeria will also be keen to monitor Olise’s progress as he is eligible to play for either country.
Olise currently plays for France at youth level but is still eligible to play for England as he grew up in the country while Nigeria is an option through his mother.
