Striker Odsonne Edouard is prepared to run down his contract and leave Celtic for
nothing, The French striker wants to leave Parkhead to test himself at a higher level
after four years in Glasgow.
Edouard, 23, has been the subject of interest from Premier League Brighton but an
agreement has not been reached.
Southampton was also keen on the ex-PSG frontman but have instead splashed out
£20million to land Blackburn goal scorer Adam Armstrong.
Italian side Roma have also held a long-term interest in Edouard but Jose Mourinho
is set to sign Tammy Abraham from Chelsea for £34m.
Now, time is running out for Celts to cash in on their biggest asset with just three
weeks of the window remaining.
And if no acceptable offers are tabled before the end of the month, the Daily Mail
claims Edouard is prepared to sit tight and wait until January, where he would be able
to hold pre-contract talks with other clubs.
Losing Edouard for nothing would be a nightmare scenario for Celtic, who shattered
their transfer record by shelling out £10m to sign the hitman permanently from PSG
in 2018 following a successful loan spell.
NSL Learnt the Hoops have identified £7m French striker Thomas Henry as Edouard’s
The prolific target-man has scored 45 goals in 78 games for Belgian side OH Leuven,
even chipping in with 12 assists.
Crystal Palace, Newcastle, and Roma are also interested in Henry but it’s believed he’s
keen on a move to Ange Postecoglou’s side.
However, any deal could hinge on Edouard’s future with Hoops chiefs eager to use
funds from any sale to invest in the squad.
