Crystal Palace prepare mega offer for Odsonne Edouard
Crystal Palace target Odsonne Edouard from Celtic to boost their attacking options.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Crystal Palace are preparing mega offer for Odsonne Edouard.
Celtic spent 10.3 million euros to sign the France international from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2018. The 21-year-old has three years left on his current contract which expires in 2022.
Edouard made 105 appearances across all competitions for Celtic, scoring 45 goals and supplying 24 assists in return.
The 21-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in France.
Odsonne Edouard has represented France at Under-17, Under-18, Under-19 and Under-21 level, winning 40 caps and scoring 33 goals.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Crystal Palace.
The 21-year-old is widely regarded as a key transfer target for Crystal Palace this winter.
The report claims that Crystal Palace manager has extensively scouted Odsonne Edouard and is considering a move for the striker. Roy Hodgson is a long term admirer of Edouard and believes he can get the most out of the France international.
According to The Sun, “Crystal Palace are planning to use a £20million lure to catch Celtic’s French super- striker Odsonne Edouard. The Eagles have cash to spend in the next window from the £50m they got from selling Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United. And talented young forward Edouard, 21, is their first choice to give Roy Hodgson’s squad more attacking threat. However, Palace will have to table a massive bid as Celtic want to keep Edouard for their title chase and a crack at Europa League glory. The Eagles are convinced Edouard can be their missing link. Christian Benteke cannot be relied on and former loanee Michy Batshuayi is back in the Chelsea squad. Palace were keen on Brentford’s Olly Watkins but they are reluctant to spend the new fee wanted for him.”
