Leeds' all-time top Premier League goalscorer is Mark Viduka but how many did he score?

The 19-year-old had a stellar campaign for Reading in the Championship and has been linked with a move to the likes of Arsenal and Bayern Munich as well as to .

The Frenchman scored seven goals and provided 12 assists in the Championship as the Royals missed out on a play-off spot.

Wainman was full of praise for Olise, and this is clearly a deal he would like to see happen.

He said: “He’s been strongly linked with a move away from the Madejski Stadium this summer and along with the likes of Arsenal, Leicester and Chelsea, Leeds United are apparently in the hunt for him.

“He had a season during the 20/21 season for the Royals, and he scored seven goals and registered 12 assists, so he’s a real talent and if we can get that done ahead of the likes of Arsenal, Bayern Munich, all these other clubs – that would be an amazing signing.”

TIF Thoughts on Olise…

Olise was prolific for both goals and assists in spells across the season; however, he also had huge chunks of the season pass by without a goal or an assist.

This suggests that he lacks consistency, but he is still very young, and given Marcelo Bielsa’s reputation for improving players, we think a move to Elland Road could be exactly what he needs.

The 19-year-old is also versatile, so he could be used in various positions.

The fact that massive clubs such as Bayern are interested suggests Olise certainly has a bright future, so it may be considered something of a coup if Leeds were to trump his other potential suitors in the fight for his signature this summer.
