Since joining Celtic in August 2017, Odsonne Edouard has been regularly announced in the Premier League. Because the 23-year-old striker does not only shine with the Bleuets, he who finished second top scorer in the qualifiers for Euro Espoirs 2021. He has also been stacking goals since he joined the Bhoys, and was also the best director of the Scottish Championship last season, with 22 goals. Like his team, second in the ranking at 23 points for Rangers, the former Parisian is less prolific today, but still has 11 goals and 4 assists in all competitions, and he is still followed by several English stables.
Successor to Aller at West Ham?
It is now a little more affordable than last summer, when it was already insistently announced a little further south. Because his contract, which he does not intend to extend, expires in June 2022. According to the Daily Star, West Ham have reportedly made him the potential successor to another French striker, Sébastien Haller, who failed to win at the Hammers and returned to Eredivisie, Ajax, during this winter transfer window for 22.5 million euros. To release Edouard, Celtic, who had recruited him for 10 million in Paris, expected nearly 40 million in the offseason, but will probably have to settle for a much less substantial sum.
Rodgers would always follow him
The Glasgow club are already preparing to see Jeremie Frimpong, in contact with Bayer Leverkusen, and his coach Neil Lennon, who is in the hot seat, admitted that other players also wanted to leave this winter. Kris Ajer, Olivier Ntcham and Edouard are among the most coveted. During the last offseason, Arsenal, Leicester and Aston Villa were particularly interested in the Guyanese center forward. We have talked about the Birmingham club again, as Edward recently changed agent to be represented by the same group as Villans star Jack Grealish. And the Foxes of his former Glasgow coach Brendan Rodgers would still watch him, while Jamie Vardy (herniated) will be out for several weeks. Anyway, one thing seems certain: even if he does not leave this winter, Odsonne Edouard should no longer be in Scotland next season.
