“I had a conversation with the manager and he was talking about how he sees me in the team: the plans, the development and the vision for the club,” Olise told Palace TV. “It’s very good, so I thought it was a good fit.
“It’s a big moment: Premier League football. The Premier League is known to be the top league in the world, so it’s definitely going to be a lot tougher. But nothing that I’m not ready for.” he said.
