Crystal Palace blow as Michael Olise a doubt for begin of the season

Crystal Palace makes movements

The end of the 2020/21 campaign put Crystal Palace in a somewhat precarious position.

The Eagles split from Roy Hodgson while in possession of an aging squad with a number of players letting their contracts run out.

So far, however, Palace has done a good job reshaping its squad for the future.

19-year-old Michael Olise has come from Reading and should definitely look to the future.

Elsewhere, Palace managed to get central defender Joachim Andersen out of Lyon on a permanent basis.

The Eagles have also signed two players from Chelsea. Marc Guehi, who was on loan at Swansea last season, has signed for a transfer fee of around £ 18 million. Conor Gallagher also came from the blues, but only loaned out for one season.

Michael Olise could miss the game against Chelsea

But before the campaign even started, Palace already had a problem with one of its newcomers.

Michael Olise would score seven goals and assist twelve in 44 championship games last season.

And with Eberechi Eze potentially sidelined until December after an injury he sustained in training in May, Palace was likely hoping that Olise – an attacking midfielder who can also play on both sides – would part of the creative burden at Ezes Absence.

However, the 19-year-old appears to have sustained an injury that could rule him out in the Palace opener against Chelsea on August 14NS.

According to the Telegraph:

Crystal Palaces newcomer Michael Olise is questionable for the start of the season with a back injury.
