Crystal Palace are reportedly interested in signing Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard this summer, joining Arsenal in the race for the French goal machine – Palace supporters have reacted on Twitter.
Edouard, 22, has starred for Celtic this season, pushing the Scottish champions towards a ninth consecutive league title. Indeed, the former Paris Saint-Germain star has scored 27 goals in 46 outings – while also adding 19 assists.
France Football have claimed that Palace are interested in luring him to Selhurst Park, but they face enormous competition for a striker that Brendan Rodgers lured to Parkhead in the summer of 2017.
Palace certainly need a striker. Christian Benteke has struggled since his move from Liverpool and although Jordan Ayew has had a better impact with the Eagles, he is hardly the man entrusted to lead Palace going forward.
The London-based side need a striker and that should be in the form of Edouard, with his price tag set at a whopping £26m. Neil Lennon is keen to keep Edouard at Parkhead for another season, but it remains to be seen what Edouard wants.
Palace supporters have reacted on Twitter to the news that their club are interested in rivallign Arsenal, Lyon and Monaco for the striker – and fans think he would be a top signing for Roy Hodgson’s side.
If this happens, I’ll run down my street in my pants

I’m a Celtic and Palace fan, Edouard is probably a better all round player than Moussa Dembele was at the same age. If he left Celtic I’d love it to be for Palace but highly doubt it will happen.
