French side Bordeaux are showing late interest in Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard, according to Alan Nixon.
The Lowdown: Edouard’s summer
Reports back in April suggested that Edouard wanted to leave Celtic Park this summer, regardless of who came in as Neil Lennon’s replacement.
The striker reportedly wants £85,000-a-week at his next club, and it seems as if another Ligue 1 side could be in for his services late in the window.
Should Celtic sell Odsonne Edouard this summer?
Yes, time for him to go!
No, keep hold of him!
The Latest: Nixon’s post
He claimed that the Hoops’ price has dropped slightly, however, the player’s demands are still big.
“French side Bordeaux taking a late and big interest in Odsonne Edouard at Celtic. Price dropped a bit, wage demands still big.”
Nixon then shared another update on Friday, claiming Rubin Kazan have come in with a €18m bid for Edouard that could tempt the Hoops.
Odsonne Edouard update. Rubin Kazan in with a 18 million euro offer. That could tempt Celtic. Wages unlikely to be a problem. Bordeaux may counter but will now need to.

The Verdict: Good decision
This summer could be the last chance the Hoops have to receive a respectable fee for Edouard, described as ‘superb’ by Darryl Broadfoot, so it’s good to see they have lowered their asking price with days remaining in the window.
Should his situation remain the same, he could leave for nothing over the next 12 months, not ideal for a player who Celtic wanted £40m for last summer.
