Arsenal reportedly eyeing move for Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard

Edouard impressing with Celtic

After impressing during a loan spell, Odsonne Edouard joined Celtic on a permanent basis in July of 2018 from Ligue 1 giants PSG.

The Scottish powerhouse are understood to have paid just shy of £10m for the Frenchman’s services.

In total, Edouard has racked up 126 appearances across all competitions for Celtic.

In those ties, the centre-forward has found the back of the net on 60 occasions, whilst also providing 31 assists.

The 22-year-old has had a particularly productive 2019/20 in front of goal, netting 27 and assisting 19 in 45 appearances.

Arsenal eyeing Edouard

Unsurprisingly, given his sensational record in the Scottish top-flight, Edouard looks to be attracting some interest from the Premier League.

As per the Mirror, north London outfit Arsenal are considering a move for the Celtic hitman, as they look to build ahead of next season.

Arsenal’s reported interest in Edouard does make a fair bit of sense, as the Gunners’ current top scorer, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, has less than 18 months left on his contract.

And it has recently been reported that Aubameyang’s £300,000-a-week wage demands are likely to force Arsenal to sell him this summer.

Chelsea and Manchester United have also been linked with a move for Aubameyang.

However, the above-linked report from the Mirror claims that Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta wants to add to his frontline regardless of what the future holds for Aubameyang.

Everton and Leicester are also said to have checked on Edouard, who the Mirror say is rated at £30m.
