Neil Lennon has told BBC Radio 5 Live’s Monday Night Club that he hopes to tie Celtic star Odsonne Edouard down to an extended contract, as per reported interest from Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Newcastle United.
Edouard, 22, has been in stunning form for Celtic this season – scoring a whopping 27 goals for the Scottish champions as well as laying on another 19 assists. That form has obviously attracted admirers, despite Edouard having a contract until 2022.
Area Napoli claim Tottenham want £30million-rated Edouard, who was also linked with Spurs in January. Meanwhile, The Star claim Newcastle have identified Edouard as well as Rangers star Alfredo Morelos. The Mirror claim Arsenal are keen.
Celtic manager Lennon was asked by Hoops icon Chris Sutton about Edouard’s future amid the current suspension of football, and Lennon stated he hopes to tie down the striker’s contract for another season – on top of his current deal.
