One of the revelations of the Championship this season is Reading youngster of Nigerian descent Michael Olise. The youngster has lightened the Championship with his abilities with the ball. His abilities have not gone unnoticed - as five Premier League clubs are showing interest in him ahead of the summer transfer.
Olise is a talented midfielder that can play on the wings due to his technical and dribbling abilities. The youngster has a similar playing style to Barcelona legend Andreas Iniesta.
The youngster, placed on the standby list by Gernot Rohr - for the AFCON qualifier matches against the Benin Republic and Lesotho, is wanted by five Premier League clubs, says the Football Insider.
Leeds United are top of the list and have started monitoring his performances in the Championship. However, they face stiff competition from Arsenal, Liverpool, Crystal Palace, and Tottenham Hotspur.
His contract with the Royals will expire at the end of the season and has a release clause of 8 million pounds. He has scored five goals, created ten assists in thirty-five matches.
