Thierry Henry has become an admirer of Celtic’s star player and fellow countryman Odsonne Edouard as Arsenal become the next club to take an interest in the striker.
The 22-year-old initially joined Celtic on loan from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 before his move was made permanent in a £9 million deal a year later.
Edouard made an instant impact at Celtic, especially when Dembele left for Lyon as the striker has scored 60 goals in 126 games for Celtic.
And according to McCoist, who scored 396 goals during his career in Scotland, Henry holds Edouard in high regard.
‘I spoke to Thierry Henry at the Liverpool vs Leicester City game and he really rates Edouard,’ McCoist told talkSPORT. ‘He was saying in France in particular [he is highly regarded] and he personally really, really thinks he’s got a chance of going right to the top.’
Is Edouard heading to the top ?
Of course the big French striker will go on to play for the elite of clubs and Odsonne will rise to the top and in the French national team.
However, we are confident that Celtic will compensate with selling Ajer to cover any loss of earnings due to the pandemic and also fund keeping Edouard for one more season, we can’t see Edouard refusing the chance to become a legend and winning 10 in a row.
