It hasn’t taken long for Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard to create hype and headlines at the start of the Scottish Premiership campaign.
After a quiet summer in pre-season friendlies, the main man kicked it up a gear against Hamilton Academical on Monday and netted his first three goals of the season.
Showing poaching instincts and a real desire to get on the end of his teammates’ output, the Frenchman looks as hungry and impressive as ever at the start of our quest for ten-in-a-row.
Yesterday’s hat-trick made a real impact on fans across Scotland and England, with many watching live on Sky Sports impressed by what he has to offer.
Thankfully he’s ours and despite murmurings of interest in the player from down south (Daily Mail), so far Celtic have made it clear they don’t want the 22-year-old to leave anytime soon.
However, as we’ve seen in recent years everyone at Celtic has their price and we can only keep our fingers crossed that no serious interest develops that would make it difficult for the Bhoys to refuse.
There’s now a clamouring from fans of some clubs such as Arsenal, Leicester, Spurs and Man United that Edouard becomes their next big buy, feeling he could be just the kind of forward they need to progress.
As far as I’m concerned they can all look on with envy for a while yet.
Celtic are playing for history in 2020/21 and we need to do everything in our power to hold on to Edouard for at least one more season.
These supporters took to Twitter over the last 48 hours to share their thoughts on the striker…
This guy is going to be top draw. Whoever gets him will have an £80m striker on their hands in a few years.

This is the man Spurs should be looking at as back up/partner/eventual successor to Kane. Surely within price range.

Another goal for Edouard. Sign him @Arsenal.

would love to see us sign Edouard from Celtic. Need an alternative to Aubameyang up front https://t.co/ybUFRUbxRQ

Can we just sign Edouard please? 49 goals in 82 appearances, 22 years old and built for the PL. Great option to have alongside Kane.

I said it last year Edouard would be a great signing for us and Man Utd fans laughed and I say it again we should sign Edouard he will make it in the premier league. https://t.co/Hx4FAreI2p

I really recommend @SpursOfficial to sign Odsonne Edouard. He’s a No.9 but can cover out wide
