National reports are suggesting that PSG have lined up Reading youngster Michael Olise as Lionel Messi's replacement.

Messi, arguably the greatest player of all time, is set to leave France in the summer.

Olise, currently impressing in the Premier League with Crystal Palace, has been watched by the Champions League giants for most of the season and the Daily Mail expect the Parisians to make their move in the summer.

A prominent player who rose through the ranks in Berkshire, making over 70 appearances, 2020/21 saw him pick up the EFL Young Player of the Season award before moving the Selhurst Park for a club record £8m.

Becoming the first Eagles player to pick up 10 assists in the Premier League, the 21-year-old has excelled in South London with the likes of Wilfried Zaha and Eberechi Eze.

According to the report, PSG are looking to 'reconnect with their fanbase and recruit young French players.'

Olise is a France Under-21 international despite being born in London.

The 2021 Champions League semi finalists are after 'a centre-back, holding midfielder, striker and two wingers this summer.'
