Report: West Ham want Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard

West Ham United are eyeing a raid on Celtic to sign Odsonne Edouard before the transfer window closes, according to the Daily Star.

The Hammers are keen to sign the Hoops player as a replacement for Sebastien Haller who joined Ajax earlier this month.

Celtic value the player at £35 million and West Ham will push hard to try and complete a capture before the deadline.

Edouard signed for the Hoops in 2018 for £10 million from PSG. He has found the net 74 times in 151 games for the Scottish Premiership giants.

David Moyes saw his side comfortably beat League One outfit Doncaster Rovers in the FA Cup yesterday.

The Hammers won 4-0 at the London Stadium, despite the boss making several changes to his team.

Edouard is thought to be keen on a move to the Premier League and the 23-year-old could get his wish this month.

 

Celtic are under a bit of pressure when it comes to Edouard. He has just 18 months left on his contract at Parkhead and the Hoops could entertain bids.

The former France under-21 international has been a fine signing for Celtic and he has the attributes to cut it in the Premier League.

Tottenham and Arsenal have previously shown an interest so West Ham could steal a march on their rivals.

He earns just £19,000-a-week and even on a pay increase, he’d represent superb value for money for West Ham.

Edouard is a natural-born goalscorer and he’d offer something different to Michail Antonio.

Moyes has worked wonders at the London Stadium and if the board land Edouard it would represent real ambition.
