Roy Hodgson gives an update on City target Michael Olise

Michael Olise is wanted by Pep Guardiola this summer.

Riyad Mahrez joined Al-Hilal this summer after Man City agreed a £30m move for the 32-year-old winger.

He has reportedly signed a three-year deal worth £36m a year with the Saudi Arabian side.

Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise has been identified as the perfect replacement for Mahrez.

He has scored two goals and made 11 assists in 40 appearances for the Eagles last season.

Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha has already left the club and manager Roy Hodgson doesn’t want to lose another key member.

But Palace values Olise at around £55m and would only let him depart for the right price.

‘We have a fight on our hands to make sure he stays with us,’ said Hodgson.

‘We had two outstanding wingers who were almost the best in the league – Michael Olise on the right side and Wilf on the left. We don’t have Wilf anymore. Clubs are circling around Olise.

‘There is still that hole of five senior players in the squad, two of whom were two of the real stars of the team.”
