It’s not a matter of IF Odsonne Edouard goes in the summer but instead how much will the club get for the striker.
The Frenchman’s Celtic exit seems inevitable after this season is done and dusted.
Celtic fans were alarmed by the rumours down south Leicester were closing in on the player for £15m, but since then it’s been reported the English club had a bid rejected according to This is Futbol.
Eddy will be in the final year of his deal when the summer roles around but Celtic can’t sell themselves short.
Some of the players who have garnered over £20m down south don’t get anywhere near Edouard on talent. Just checkout Sheffield Utd’s strike force!
If the reports BBC are remotely true, a bidding war this summer could help Celtic get top dollar for the frontman.
“Roma fear they will be gazumped in their pursuit of Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard as they want to pay the £20m asking price in instalments and that could open the door to Serie A rivals AC Milan , Arsenal, Aston Villa and Leicester City , who have also registered an interest.”
The more clubs interested the better it is for the Hoops. Although how much can Aston Villa be in the frame if the likes of Milan and Arsenal are circling?
Celtic will have to make sure they get as much as they can, they will need to replace Eddy and that won’t be cheap.
