Arsenal reportedly targeting striker that would be best bargain since Kieran Tierney - TBR View

Arsenal are being strongly linked with a move for Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard, who could be a brilliant addition to the squad at the Emirates Stadium.

Ian McGarry claimed on his Transfer Window podcast that the Gunners have made a “solid enquiry” to try sign the 23-year-old ahead of the summer.

It is explained that the centre-forward could end up leaving for around £21.5million.

Edouard, who has won three league titles in Scotland with Celtic, is someone that looks like he could be a massive bargain at the reported price tag.

His capture at that price would be the best piece of Arsenal business since they signed left-back Kieran Tierney ironically from Celtic for £25million (Sky Sports) in 2019.

There were doubts that Tierney could cut it when he moved south of the border, but the Scottish defender has become one of the key men in Mikel Arteta’s side and performs each week to such a high standard in the Premier League.

It might not seem like a long time ago, but several players have come through the Arsenal doors in the last year and Tierney is by far the best pound-for-pound signing.

Arsenal should learn from the Tierney blueprint to know there are top-class players in the Scottish division.

Edouard has scored 20 goals in 32 games across all competitions this season and is currently in a rich vein of form.

He’s an all-round brilliant striker with decent pace, exhausting finishing qualities and the ability to lead from the front while bringing others into play.

Aged 23, it looks like the perfect time in his career for him to now make the step up and it’ll be no surprise if the Frenchman scores goals regularly at Arsenal to make him a maor bargain.
