According to rumours, Leicester City is willing to pay £15 million for Odsonne Edouard this summer, while Celtic are demanding £20 million.
Edouard has been linked with a move to Leicester City, where he might rejoin with former Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers. The striker is entering the final year of his Celtic contract and is looking for a fresh challenge. Leicester are on the lookout for a long-term replacement for Jamie Vardy and might make a move for Edouard to help Kelechi Iheanacho.
Leicester are feeling increasingly confident of signing Edouard this summer, as TEAMtalk exclusively reported earlier this month. The Foxes believe they have won the race for his signing despite stiff competition.
However, they still have work to do in order to persuade Celtic to sell. The Scottish club is aware that Edouard will be leaving this summer, but they still want to receive the best deal possible.
Celtic want £20 million for Edouard, according to the Daily Record, which is £5 million more than Leicester believe they can obtain for him.
A sell-on clause was incorporated in Edouard’s contract when he was signed by Celtic from Paris Saint-Germain. As a result, if Celtic decides to sell him, they’ll want to make sure they get a good price for him.
They are, however, willing to let him leave now since they believe his head was changed last summer, resulting in a drop in performance. Despite this, he has 16 goals in 26 games in the Scottish Premiership this season.
Edouard, who has also attracted attention from Arsenal and West Ham, is one of Europe’s most promising strikers. Next season, Leicester will hope to benefit from the 23-year-abilities. old’s
Edouard turned down Liverpool.
Liverpool appears to be one team Edouard will not be joining. Last month, it was reported that Jurgen Klopp had personally phoned him, but the conversations did not go well.
Edouard and Divock Origi were said to be on the verge of a trade deal. That, however, is not going to happen.
The Frenchman informed Klopp he wasn’t sure where he would fit into their attack, according to Anfield Central. Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, and Diogo Jota are the four choices available to Klopp at the moment.
Despite appearing to be a potential Firmino replacement, Edouard does not appear to be optimistic about his chances. As a result, the former PSG teenager graciously refused Klopp’s approach.
Edouard’s arrival in the Premier League, on the other hand, would not be surprising.
