Celtic star Odsonne Edouard has been the subject of transfer speculation in recent days after The Mirror reported that Arsenal were keen on signing the player whenever the summer transfer window opens.
The paper say that Mikel Arteta is keen on signing a striker even if they hold on to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
It’s said that Leicester and Everton are also keen on the player but that the Gunners are willing to take part in a transfer tug-of-war for the player rated at £30m.
Obviously everything in football is up in the air right now.
We don’t even know when action might return, nevermind know who’ll be in Neil Lennon’s squad and who won’t be.
It seems unlikely any major transfer moves will be made in the early part of the summer transfer window given the current situation.
Edouard also appears to be very happy in Glasgow and before the season’s suspension was in imperious form.
He’s scored 27 goals and assisted 19 times in 45 appearances this season (Transfermarkt), also showing remarkable scoring prowess for the French U21 side.
Understandable then that Arsenal fans are keen on the recent reports and want to sign him.
The speculation appears to have excited some supporters who covet the player and think he’s a ‘world class’ talent.
These fans have taken to Twitter over the last couple of days to share their thoughts…
Please, just so we can have his chant 😭

Absolutely he is world class, can score goals and assist and would work well with auba. By far one of the greatest strikers in the game atm

I’d love it if we got Edouard, he’s a quality player, but its the mirror so its most likely bollocks
