Blow for Arsenal as target indicates intentions to join Leicester

Odsonne Edouard has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal in recent transfer windows, but latest reports claim he is set on a switch to Leicester.

The Celtic hitman has earned suitors in a number of clubs after two extremely impressive campaigns in the Scottish Premier League, and finally looks set to leave the club at the end of the campaign.

Edouard will be entering into the final 12 months of his playing deal this summer, and Celtic would be crazy to risk losing him for free in 2022, and you would imagine he will have a number of clubs on offer when the window opens.

Leicester could well put the speculation to bed should they arrange a deal before then however, and the DailyMail claims that he has already made his intention known that he would like to join the Foxes.

Edouard played under Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers for the Hoops previously, in fact he was the manager who was in charge when he was signed from Paris Saint-Germain back in 2017 when he arrived on an initial loan with an option to buy.

It has been his form since making that switch which has brought attention from Arsenal, who are expected to make changes in attack come the end of the term.

Alexandre Lacazette is also entering into the final 12 months of his contract this summer, and is also linked with a potential move, although his next destination remains unknown.

    I wouldn’ t say Leicester have a done deal by any means. Their rumoured £15M offer doesn’t make much sense as PSG will get 40% of what Celtic make from the sale. So that would leave Celtic with less than £4M profit? I think they’ll tell Leicester to come back with an improved offer, citing Emirates interest and even Roma. The £20M figure seemed more realistic as the guy will likely go for say £65M in 3/4 years. Good Euro experience and track record with the French under 23’s

      transfer fees are always overstated and jacked up by media and fans

      upaceamno went to bayern for 35m when the media was reporting for 100m and above

      with covid…clubs are in huge financial debt

        John, Upamecano is going to Bayern Munchen, because they met his buy out clause.

  2. The Real Vieira Lynn says:

    I’m not convinced that he has what it takes to produce on a regular basis in the EPL, but considering the fact that Leicester’s recruitment policies have been far superior to ours in recent years it does make me question my assessment a bit…the other concern is that he seems to have a few attitude-related issues that could be problematic should he be offered a longer term deal with typical starter striker wages

    NOT AGOOD ENOUGH PLAYER imo. His stats in a woeful Scottish Prem, playing with the second best team this season and the best team the previous seasons, are nothing special. When I have seen him play on TV he does not look at all special.

    LEAVE ALONE IS WHAT I THINK WE WILL AND SHOULD DO.

    Spot on Jon. He has had a very poor season and would not improve our team.
