Premier League champions Liverpool will reportedly offer Celtic Divock Origi plus cash in a summer deal for Odsonne Edouard.
That’s according to an exclusive report from Anfield Central, who claim that the Reds are hoping they can get the Belgian to head to Celtic Park in a permanent move.
Klopp eyeing Edouard
Edouard, 23, has scored 20 goals in 34 appearances this season for the Hoops, and it seems as if Jurgen Klopp is the latest manager to have his eye on the Frenchman.
Reports earlier this month claimed that Leicester City were closing in on a £15m deal for Edouard, however, Celtic seem to value the forward, who has just over 12 months left on his Parkhead deal, at the £20m mark.

Transfer Tavern take
The potential inclusion of Origi is certainly an interesting one. Charlie Nicholas actually urged Brendan Rodgers to bring the Reds man to Glasgow in 2019.
Origi is valued at £14.4m by Transfermarkt, £900,000 more than Edouard’s valuation. Still just 25 years of age, the Belgian, should he be open to a reported move, could thrive in the Scottish Premiership.
He’s struggled for regular game time on Merseyside in recent seasons but has still notched up over 150 appearances for the Reds, scoring 35 times.
Becoming first-choice at Parkhead could well be just what he needs at this point in his career, but only time will tell if a reported player-plus-cash move appeals to him.
