According to a 90mins report claim that Crystal Palace have won a race to sign France Under-18 international after activated the £8million release clause in Olise’s contract and have agreed on personal terms.
The youngster has clearly chosen to follow a similar path led by his fellow Nigerian descent Eze who remain in London at a club where he will get regular game time.
Olise will become Vieira’s first signing since becoming Crystal Palace manager on Sunday.
