It’s not even hit December yet and we have our first transfer rumour about who wants Celtic’s star striker Odsonne Edouard.

Is it Inter Milan, Arsenal, Juventus, Lyon….No, the Daily Mail have stated Crystal Palace are interested in the Celtic striker and could look to move for the player in January.

The paper hits the bullet points:

  • Odsonne Edouard is a top-target for Crystal Palace in January in a £20m swoop
  • The 21-year-old Celtic striker has eight goals in 11 SPL games so far this season
  • Palace are struggling for goals, with just 10 in 12 Premier League games so far
  • Frenchman Edouard could be the answer, but Celtic want him to stay in Glasgow

Seriously? Crystal Palace?

Odsonne Edouard is a special talent and we’re seeing that through his Celtic performances and his French under 21 appearances. From where we’re sitting – when the striker finally does go he won’t have to make a backwards step like going to Palace to hit it big somewhere else.

The striker has the tools right now to play in some big teams across Europe and with no due respect to Crystal Palace, he’s too good to go slum it at the bottom of the Premier League.

Ideally, we want Eddy for the next season and a half but money will always talk. There will be decisions to be made January and the summer. Hopefully Celtic can resist.

This rumour being punted by the Daily Mail is flimsy at best.


  1. Anything over thirty million and he’s gone. No doubt about it. No the sevconians will say ‘pish oor Columbian drug smugglers worth Seventy Million’ If he’s never caught.
