Key stats 

Born in Hammersmith, London, to a French-Algerian mother and a Nigerian father, Olise lit up some of the best academies in the game from a frighteningly young age. Spells at Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City preceded a move to Reading, where his fledgling career would eventually take flight. 

Debuting in England's second tier in March 2019 as an 18-year-old, Olise was soaring just two years later when weighing in with a solid 19 goals involvements in 44 league appearances. Those figures saw the versatile attacker win the division's Young Player of the Season award and had Premier League side Crystal Palace calling.
