Another PL club joins Arsenal in race with increased offer eyed

Aston Villa are the latest side to be linked with making an offer to sign Odsonne Edouard from Celtic this summer, along with the likes of Arsenal, Leicester, Crystal Palace and Newcastle.

The Express stated that the Gunners were keen on a a move to sign the 22 year-old throughout the 2019-20 campaign, with the Frenchman reported to be a possible replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Alexandre Lacazette, but the possibility remains that both could remain at the club into the new season.

Aubameyang is said to be close to a new deal with the club, ESPN reported last month, and there has been very little rumours about his potential exit since.

Edouard would be a better fit as a replacement for Lacazette however, with the striker’s ability to provide and score in excess from the central role, and he could well forge an amazing partnership with Aubameyang, given a chance of course.

Our club may be keen on securing exits prior to investing money elsewhere, especially with the financial implications that the Coronavirus pandemic has had on clubs around the world.

Time may well be running out if they do wish to strike a deal for Edouard however, with GlasgowLive reporting on interest from Newcastle, Leicester and Palace.

The latter were believed to be eyeing a £25 Million bid for the goalscorer only last month, as reported in The Sun, but the same publication now reports that Aston Villa are looking to test the club’s resolve with a £30 Million bid after making his signature a priority.

Could Arsenal still follow up on their previous interest and move for Edouard?

    Even if Lacazeth is sold, I don’t think arsenal will invest the money on another striker.
    Auba is staying (hopefully) and we have matineli.
    I thing a new striker is a no no for now, given arsenal financial situation except Auba fails to sign a new deal.

    Done deal Gabriel

    If Laca is swapped with Partey and we sign Edouard then that could be decent business?

    I am not sure, we were ever interested, he seems a decent player though. I hope we can have target man.

    So far I am about a 3/10 on arsenal transfer business this window. If we do sign gabriel magalhaes it may raise to a 4.5. But i cannot say I am happy with arsenal business yet. I do hooe we ship out the dead wood and at minimum sign auba. This would put me on a 5. And the addition of TP would put it up to a 7 and id be happy with that. Anything extra would be very good news but that would atleast secure our main areas that need a upgrade and keep out goal scorer
