PETER LAWWELL is trying to wrap up deals for some of the top players at Celtic before he bows out of the club.
The outgoing CEO appears to be very busy conducting business with Kristoffer Ajer and Odsonne Edouard over deals to leave the club.
We reported earlier Bayer Leverkusen are keen on Kristoffer Ajer and talks have opened up between the two clubs.
Respected journalist Fabrizio Romano now claims Celtic are in ‘advanced talks’ to sell Odsonne Edouard to Leicester City.
Leicester are in advanced talks to sign Odsonne Édouard from Celtic, now working to complete the deal – many clubs interested so #LCFC keen to secure it quickly.
Not yet at signings stage but Leicester board now confident. Soumaré deal with Lille, done and confirmed. 🔵🦊 #lcfc

It was Brendan Rodgers who brought Eddy to Celtic from PSG in the first place and his admiration for the striker has only grown since then.
Eddy fancies a crack at the English Premier League and the temptation to rejoin his former manager will be driving the deal.
For Celtic, it’s all about getting the best price possible – there’s no way the striker goes cheaply. We know Eddy won’t be here next season so it’s vital we can get as much cash for the striker as possible.
