Celtic: Bordeaux interested in Odsonne Edouard

Celtic: Bordeaux interested in Odsonne Edouard -Celtic

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.

Ange Postecoglou was that man, and the 23-year-old has been a regular this season after his move to Leicester City fell through in July.

Edouard, into the final 12 months of his contract, is still working on a Scotland exit, with Nice thought to be preparing a bid recently.

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!

The Latest: Nixon’s post

Nixon, who writes for The Sun, took to Twitter on Friday morning to share an update on the French forward.

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.

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.

A fee close to or just under his Transfermarkt valuation of £15.3m could still be good business all things considered, and that should put Dominic McKay in profit in his first summer as CEO.
