Matt Woosnam has hailed Crystal Palace’s early transfer business and believes two new arrivals will go on to be a hit at Selhurst Park.
The Athletic’s Eagles reporter Woosnam has high hopes for Guehi and Olise.
Who will prove to be the better Palace signing?
England under-21 international Guehi has joined from Premier League rivals Chelsea in what is reported to be a £20million deal, having caught the eye during a loan spell with Championship side Swansea City.
The 21-year-old central defender made 45 appearances for the Swans as they were denied a return to the Premier League by Brentford in last season’s play-off final.
Olise, 19, became Patrick Vieira’s first signing in July, with the attacker joining for £8million.
He has made the switch having been named the EFL’s young player of the year thanks to a stellar season with Reading.
Woosnam believes the duo show Vieira is trying to build a youthful squad at Selhurst Park and the journalist is expecting more arrivals.
Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, he said: “I think there’s going to be a handful of signings.
“In Marc Guehi and Michael Olise, they have signed two of the Championship’s best up-and-coming players. I think that’s a really strong, solid start to the recruitment.
“It’s clear that they’re casting their net far and wide and looking at a lot of players. There’s no doubt about that.”
