ODSONNE EDOUARD is without a doubt Celtic’s hottest property and biggest asset.
The Frenchman came in on an initial loan deal to play back up to Moussa Dembele and when Moussa headed to Lyon, the Frenchman went about surpassing his compatriot’s exploits for the club in my opinion.
Celtic fans are desperate to hold onto Eddy for the ten. It’s going to be a long summer in that regard.
Ally McCoist claims he spoke to Thierry Henry about Odsonne briefly at a Premier League game earlier this season and the legendary striker told him, Eddy is rated in France.
“I spoke to Thierry Henry at the Liverpool vs Leicester City game and he really rates Edouard,” McCoist told the DailyStar.
“He was saying in France in particular [Edouard is admired] and he personally really, really thinks he’s got a chance of going right to the top.”
It appears it’s not just Celtic fans who rate the striker, and rightly so. But it will make for a nervy transfer window when football is back on the menu in Scotland.
Edouard keeps his cards close to his chest and as we’ve seen in many windows, nobody is safe until it’s firmly shut.
If Celtic can hang onto the Frenchman for one more season – it would give the support such a boost.
