Leicester ‘believe’ they have won race for Arsenal-linked Odsonne Edouard

Leicester ‘believe’ they have won race for Arsenal-linked Odsonne Edouard

An update surrounding the race for the signature of Celtic star Odsonne Edouard has been provided.

Premier League sides eyeing Edouard

Edouard made the move to Celtic on a permanent basis in 2018, departing PSG for around £9m.

And the Frenchman has since gone on to enjoy a very solid stint at Parkhead.

All told, in 160 outings across all competitions, Edouard has found the net 81 times, and provided 35 assists.

And though Celtic are not having the greatest season so far, the 23-year-old himself has continued to produce, with 20 goals and four assists in 32 appearances.

Such fine form has, unsurprisingly, seen Edouard garner interest from outside of Scotland.

Teams such as Arsenal and West Ham have previously been credited with an interest in the hitman, whose current Celtic deal only runs until 2022.

It was also claimed recently that Leicester City could face competition from both the Gunners and Aston Villa in the race to sign the Frenchman.

Edouard set for Leicester?

Now, though, a fresh update, which emerged late on Thursday evening, suggests that one club have taken a firm lead in the pursuit of Edouard.

According to the Daily Mail, Leicester believe they have won the race to sign Edouard.

It is added that the attacker is believed to be keen to link up with former boss Brendan Rodgers at the King Power, with a deal worth around £15m close to being agreed.

Such a fee may seem slightly low for a player with Edouard’s goalscoring ability, but it is worth remembering that the hitman will have just one year left on his current contract in the summer.
