They are evidently Crystal Palace’s two best players, but Roy Hodgson’s side may be forced to sell if a suitable offer is lodged during the next transfer window.

Olise has nine goal contributions in 11 Premier League games so far this season, while Eze stands at five goals and one assist in 16 league matches in 2023-24.

What has been said?

Fabrizio Romano has confirmed there is interest in Crystal Palace’s star duo.

He told CaughtOffside: “Keep an eye as well on Crystal Palace as I think it’s going to be interesting in the summer especially for Michael Olise, who is on the list of many top clubs in England. I think he’s going to be one of the big names of the window, but where is he going, it’s still too early to say,” Romano said.

“Eberechi Eze was on Manchester City’s list last summer, though there’s no development so far since then.

“FFP had a big impact on the January transfer window, but overall the feeling in the summer is that it will be a very different story.”

Spanish outlet Fichajes recently reported that Eze could cost as much as €90 million this summer, with Crystal Palace holding out for a huge fee for the England international.

€70m was previously touted as the potential fee that Eze would cost, but it may cost even more as Palace look to maximise their possible income.

As for Olise, he is also expected to cost a lot – with a figure of around €60m suggested as his potential asking price.
