Rumoured Leeds United target Michael Olise has hinted at a move away from Reading this summer, following a unique goal celebration spotted by Leeds Live.
The Whites-linked 19-year-old is enjoying an excellent season in the Championship, proving to be one of Reading’s key men in their Premier League promotion push.
Olise has registered 10 league assists to date, with only Norwich City’s Emiliano Buendia having more, as well as scoring six goals for good measure.
Olise hints at Reading exit
After scoring, Olise did a ‘signing the deal’ celebration, via Leeds Live, perhaps hinting that he is set to move elsewhere this summer.
As their report points out, the youngster’s contract expires next summer, so it would be in Reading’s best interest to sell up this year rather than lose him for free in 2022.
It may be that he could be on the verge of extending his deal at Reading, of course, although that would be a surprise, given the number of top clubs tipped to be interested in him.
Transfer Tavern take
For Olise to be thriving in the Championship as a teenager says a lot about his potential, considering what a notoriously difficult and physically demanding league it is.
His age also means he could join Leeds as both a current option and a long-term prospect, as Marcelo Bielsa hopefully looks to build a team well into the future.
In other news, one Leeds player has been linked with a summer exit, with two clubs keen on signing him. Find out who it is here.
