At 17-years-old, and still only a first year U18 player, Olise came of the bench against Leeds in March to make his senior unveiling for the Royals.

Having joined the club from U15 level, he played 28 times across the U18s and U23s during 2018-19 and made four appearances for the senior team – the only player to represent all three sides that season.

He scored three goals that campaign for the Academy teams, including a sublime free kick for the U18s as they ran out winners against Colchester United in the FA Youth Cup.

He was handed a debut start away against Stoke in March, and after the final game of the season against Birmingham he was awarded with the Maurice Evans Memorial Trophy for Scholar of the Year – still only 17-years-old.

The following summer he was called up to the French U18 squad for the 2019 Toulon Tournament in Provence.
