Leicester City ‘could face competition’ from Arsenal for Odsonne Edouard

Leicester City ‘could face competition’ from Arsenal for Odsonne Edouard

Several Premier League sides have been credited with an interest in Celtic forward Odsonne 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.

Premier League sides eyeing Edouard

Such a consistent return of goals at a fairly young age 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.

And now, as mentioned above, a fresh transfer update on Edouard has been forthcoming online.

As per a report from the Leicester Mercury, Leicester City could face competition from Arsenal and Aston Villa in the race to sign the Frenchman.

In terms of a potential fee for Edouard, Celtic are said to have wanted around £40m for his services last summer. However, a sum closer to £20m may now be enough to sign the centre-forward during the upcoming transfer window.
