Brighton supporters want swap deal to sign Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard

Brighton are the latest Premier League side to be reportedly interested in raiding Celtic for hotshot striker Odsonne Edouard this summer – and fans of the Seagulls have suggested a player-plus-cash deal, with Celtic linked with one of their players.

The Times claim Brighton are the latest to enter the race to sign 22-year-old Edouard, who scored a whopping 27 goals for the Scottish champions last season – and even laid on an impressive 19 assists. He has a contract at Celtic until 2022.

Edouard has been linked with numerous Premier League sides over the past few weeks, but as the window grows older – it looks more and more likely that the Frenchman will remain at Celtic for another season.

However, Brighton may have something to say about that – with The Mail claiming Celtic want to sign 28-year-old powerhouse Shane Duffy. It is believed talks have already been held to sign the Ireland international on loan.

While Brighton are supposedly after a permanent sale with West Ham and West Brom interested in such a move, surely Brighton could take advantage of Celtic’s interest in Duffy by helping them complete a deal for Edouard.

Brighton supporters have reacted on Twitter to the news that Duffy is a target for Neil Lennon’s side, by proposing a player-plus-cash deal that would see boyhood Celtic fan (Argus) Duffy move north – and Edouard to the Amex Stadium.
