According to Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol, Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard could sign a contract extension with just two years left on the four-year deal he signed in the summer of 2018 when he moved to Parkhead permanently from Paris Saint-Germain following a successful season-long loan.
The 22-year-old is wanted in the Premier League after netting 22 league goals in the Scottish Premiership this term, with Arsenal, Everton and Leicester City all linked with him.
Lille, Lyon, RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund are also interested in the services of the Frenchman, according to le10sport, but Solhekol believes suitors have to part with more than £25 million to have a chance of landing him this summer.
“Odsonne Edouard is not necessarily going anywhere. He’s had a great season, scoring 28 times, and he’s only 22 so it’s not surprising other clubs are looking at him closely,” Solhekol said.
“He’s got two years left on his Celtic contract and he could sign a new deal. The biggest fee that a Scottish club have ever received for a player is the £25m Arsenal paid Celtic for Kieran Tierney last summer.
“Someone would need to offer more than that for Celtic to be tempted to do business and that kind of money is unlikely to be flying round the transfer market during the next window. Leicester have been watching him closely and Brendan Rodgers knows all about him from his time managing Celtic.”
Edouard has helped Celtic to the top of the Premiership table as they look to make it nine titles in a row, with Neil Lennon’s men 13 points clear at the top of the league table.
The Hoops star is favourite to emerge as the Player of the Year following an incredible individual season, and is without a doubt the best player in the land.
He has won two Scottish Premiership titles at Parkhead and could be willing to stay beyond this summer in order to help Celtic to ten-in-a-row.
