Arsenal are preparing a summer bid for Celtic star Odsonne Edouard, according to the Leicester Mercury, via The Scottish Daily Mail (Paper Edition; 26th Feb; back page)
Following the latest reports emerging, the Gunners fan base has been reacting on Twitter.
Edouard has been at Celtic Park since checking in from PSG in 2018. He has proved prolific during his time in Scotland, scoring 81 goals in 160 appearances.
Celtic did value the player at £40 million back in August, although a fee closer to £20 million could now be enough to tempt the Hoops into a sale.
The 23-year-old has found the net 21 times in all competitions this season, despite a season of struggle for Celtic.
The Gunners could be on the market for a striker. Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are both heavily linked with moves away from North London, leaving just Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the striking department.
The £19,500-a-week Edouard could be ideal to bolster the Gunners’ attacking ranks and supporters have been reacting.
Here is what fans have been saying about the interest in the French talisman.
He's going to be a good player watched his clip. To me I think he's going to fit in well at arsenal. The question now is can arsenal pay that amount ?

I know it's just the Scottish League, but this guy is a rela talent, watched him play a lot for Celtic. Would be a great, not so costly option.

He’s a quality striker extremely hard to tackle when inside the box!
