Aston Villa: Fans react to Odsonne Edouard transfer blow

Aston Villa: Fans react to Odsonne Edouard transfer blow - Aston Villa Transfer Rumours

Many Aston Villa fans have reacted to a report that claims a potential summer move for Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard has hit a snag.

Claret and Blue boss Dean Smith will use the summer months to strengthen his side and potentially add a new frontman after seeing the likes of Wesley, Mbwana Samatta and Keinan Davis all struggle to find regular goal-scoring form.

Having previously been linked with a move for Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos, reports have since emerged linking Celtic’s Edouard.

Daily Telegraph writer Mike McGrath was among the first to report that Villa would like to make a summer move for the £13.5m-valued striker who netted an impressive 21 goals in 27 games and gained 12 assists in the Scottish Premiership last term.

However, that report has now been followed up by a claim from the Scottish Sun that says the striker would reject a move to Villa Park this summer and hold out for a ‘better’ offer.

Reacting to the transfer report via Twitter account Aston Villa News, fans discussed the striker and one – perhaps in jest – said “where is Suso when you need him?” Of course, the ex-Sporting Director left Villa Park earlier in the summer after some questionable transfer decisions last term. Had he not, he would have been the man negotiating with Edouard.

Do you think Villa can still sign Edouard? Let us know in the comments section below…
