Leicester City poised to land Celtic striker

When it comes to the transfer market, Leicester City are simply one of the best in the business.

According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Leicester City are poised to land Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard.

The 21-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.

The France international was signed by Celtic in July 2018 from Paris Saint-Germain for a fee of 10.3 million euros. The 21-year-old has a contract until 2022 with the club.

Edouard has scored 16 goals and assisted 15 more across all competitions this season.

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 42 caps and scoring 35 goals.

He has been one of the star players for Celtic this season.

Brendan Rodgers is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.

Odsonne Edouard would provide a good variety to Leicester City’s attack.

According to Tribalfootball, “Leicester City are ready to bid for Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard. The Daily Record says the Foxes are preparing a £30million bid for Edouard. Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers wants to raid his old club to sign the 21-year-old, who he brought to Glasgow. It’s claimed the Scottish champions have warned the Foxes that their star man ISN’T for sale. But Rodgers, 46, is said to be willing to put the record-breaking offer on hold until the end of the season.”


It would take a huge offer from Leicester City to prise the 21-year-old striker from Celtic.

The 21-year-old is certainly a player that would strengthen the current Leicester City squad and would be a good buy.

But, it will be a huge surprise if Leicester City signs Odsonne Edouard in January. A summer move will be favorable for all the parties involved.
