Guardian Sports writer Ed Aarons is claiming Patrick Viera is targeting Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard as the journalist talks up the French connection at Crystal Palace.
Arsenal legend Patrick Viera has taken over from Roy Hodgson at Palace and is going about assembling his side for next season.
The London club are looking for a striker and have contacted Arsenal about a potential move for one of their younger stars.
Celtic striker Odsonne Édouard, who worked with Palace’s new development coach Saïd Aïgoun at Paris Saint-Germain’s academy, is another potential target for Patrick Vieira https://t.co/QOnydtL6g5

Could a French connection and the lure of EPL wages be enough for Edouard to leave Celtic.
There’s no doubt the player has all the attributes to be a top striker. Career wise, Crystal Palace would be a step backwards, but is it a move Eddy has to make to show his worth in the EPL to win a better move.
Playing for a club at the lower end of the table means his chances will be at a premium and the player will be pinned back with the rest of his teammates.
Is there anyone else looking at the striker at this moment in time?
