Some Chelsea supporters are keen on landing Odsonne Edouard after a weekend report from 90min.com that stated scouts have been watching the red hot Celtic forward.
Edouard has been Neil Lennon’s main man this season, taking his scoring tally beyond 20 and his assist total into the double figures.
A stand-out in Scotland, it’s not much of a surprise to hear big cash-rich clubs are showing interest ahead of the summer transfer window.
It’s been commonplace for fans of English sides to talk down the Scottish game in recent years as the money disparity between the two nation’s top leagues continues to widen.
However, in the case of Edouard, it appears he is exciting some supporters whose club has ambitions to win silverware in the country.
The message from our end is very much ‘you can look, but don’t touch!’ with Celtic supporters everywhere surely wanting the Frenchman to stay in Glasgow for as long as possible.
No doubt the hype surrounding Edouard will continue as he racks up the goals for both Celtic and the French U21 side.
Until a club come in with a big bid though, Celtic don’t really have a decision to make beyond potentially offering him new terms to keep him settled and well rewarded at Celtic Park.
That clubs in more illustrious leagues covet our players is a great sign and hopefully, Edouard continues to blow the opposition away heading towards May.
These Chelsea supporters have taken to Twitter over the last 24 hours to share their thoughts, offering an insight into how Edouard is perceived outside of Scotland…

I’d take him over Dembele

This needs to be a priority he’s a better all round player than dembele and cheaper.

YES!! The guy is a BOSS and extremely quick. Versatile and a different game than Tammys. Would love this signing

This guy is a brutal striker, we will bench Tammy,can coil it outside the box and very skillful and strong

I think this is better from Chelsea, a young and complete forward

Smart move if they also go for Sancho he’s a good cheaper player that is underrated
