Hammers boss David Moyes wants to bring the 19-year-old Royals starlet to the London Stadium this summer according to the Reading Chronicle.

The teenager has an £8 million release clause inserted into his contract at Reading (The Athletic).

Olise has been in sensational form for Reading this season. He has racked up five goals and 10 assists in 36 Championship games for the Royals (Transfermarkt).

The 19-year-old is clearly a very special talent. He would have been an exceptionally exciting addition for West Ham.

West Ham could lose out on Michael Olise to Bayern Munich

It seems as though the Hammers could be set to miss out on Olise’s signature to Bayern Munich. And that is a real shame for the East London outfit.

£8 million for a player with Olise’s talent and potential will surely end up looking like a massive bargain.

And the fact that Bayern are interested in signing the 19-year-old proves just how good he is.

West Ham may well still have hopes of bringing the teenager to the London Stadium from Reading.

If Bayern Munich make a concrete offer for his services, however, it will likely be the end of our pursuit of Olise.
