Leeds United fans have taken to the social media site Twitter to express their reaction to reports linking the club to a move by Michael Olise.
According to reports from The Sun., Leeds and Crystal Palace are interested in signing exciting Reading midfielder Michael Olise in the January transfer window.
The 19-year-old is seen as one of the best young prospects outside of the Premier League, and it appears the two Premier League clubs are vying for his signature.
The former Chelsea youth has been in top form this season, having scored four goals and provided six assists for Reading.
Leeds tried to sign the 18-year-old French international and are still interested in signing him.
Many Leeds fans feel that Olise would be a smart addition to the club. These are some of the selected tweets:
Come in and do it £ 8m is nothing to your potential

If we get it, I think we should give Roberts because I think he would be a brilliant player there.

First he will be trapped in the U23s for a while, promising player albeit very talented 👍

It would be great if they did that, if not one for scum of us, but we really can’t accept Roberts. Olise is of a different class than him

It should be all this looks great every time I’ve seen it

The key objective for Leeds is survival, and the Whites have done well to suggest that they will achieve their goals.
It remains to be seen if Marcelo Bielsa would be interested in signing any players in January, but Olise would be a smart choice for them.
The midfield is an area in which Leeds could look to reinforce. The player has an £ 8 million release clause in his contract and Leeds should consider making a move for him.
Football Insider claimed last month that clubs like Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig, Monaco and Napoli have also shown interest in the youngster, while Premier League champions Liverpool are as well.
