Ligue 1 side Nice are submitting a bid for Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard, according to Football Insider.
The Lowdown: Giakoumakis to arrive?
The Hoops appear to be making progress in bringing a striker in of their own before the end of the month.
It could well be a case of one in, one out at Celtic Park, with an update provided on Nice’s links with Edouard.
Should Celtic sell Odsonne Edouard this summer?
Yes, time for him to go!
No, keep hold of him!
The Latest: Source shares update
Football Insider shared a story on Thursday where pundit Kevin Campbell gave his thoughts on the situation.
In their report, they shared the latest from a Celtic source, who claimed that a bid is being submitted by Nice. They didn’t share how much that would be worth, but it is understood the Hoops may have to accept less than £20m.
The Verdict: Sell
Edouard has been a fine servant to Celtic and has been a regular under Ange Postecoglou this season, but with the forward working on a Parkhead exit, the club should look to sell if they land Giakoumakis.
If Celtic don’t cash in this month, they could risk losing him for nothing over the coming months, not exactly ideal when the Hoops were after £40m last summer.
He’d be free to discuss a possible pre-contract agreement in the New Year, so it seems to be the time for Dominic McKay to cash in if the incoming bid from Nice is reasonable.
