Liverpool and Chelsea join the race for Reading attacker Michael Olise, according to a report.

Liverpool and Chelsea have reportedly joined a growing list of clubs interested in signing Reading attacker Michael Olise in 2021.

The 18-year-old has scored twice and registered three assists in 10 appearances for the Royals this season and is widely regarded as one of the best young talents outside of the Premier League.

Arsenal, Leeds United and Wolverhampton Wanderers were all linked with his services in the latter stages of the summer transfer window.

However, according to TEAMtalk, Liverpool and Chelsea have now joined the race for a player who only has just over 18 months left to run on his current deal.

Olise spent time with Chelsea during his youth career, while he also represented Manchester City before moving to Reading in 2016, ultimately signing a professional contract with the Championship side in July 2019.

The France Under-18 international, who has made 37 appearances in all competitions for his current side, is capable of playing in a number of different positions in the final third of the field.
