There have been reports over the weekend Odsonne Edouard has attracted interest from Brighton.
It’s well documented the Celtic striker wants to leave the club this summer – but so far – there’s been very little news of a big money move.
Record Sport have wrote Brighton have now ‘registered’ an interest. However, with the clock ticking down to the start of the season, Celtic really need to know what they’re working with.
We know Edouard will likely leave, but for how much? Celtic will have to reinvest a percentage of the players transfer fee to help bulk up the squad. The later we leave it the less Eddy’s fee will matter for this window.
The Bhoys are going into a Champions League qualifier on Tuesday night running un fumes . The Celtic board’s inaction and mismanagement since the start of this calendar year means we’re up against it.
It’s time to get serious about selling Edouard and finally move forward this season.
If Eddy wanted to stay and sign a new deal, I’d be all for it, but he’s made it clear this is the end of the line for him at Celtic.
He has been a great signing for the club but as we go into this rebuild, he’s more of a distraction.
