Crystal Palace exclusive: French football expert talks Edouard rumour and Benteke

Crystal Palace exclusive: French football expert talks Edouard rumour and Benteke -Crystal Palace

Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard would be a “big upgrade” on Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke, French football expert Adam White has told The Transfer Tavern.

Palace look to be in the market for a new centre-forward this summer, with Sky Sports previously reporting that they were in talks to sign Adam Armstrong before his move to Southampton.

With that now out of the window, though, they will have to look elsewhere and Edouard is seemingly an option.

Would Edouard be an upgrade on Benteke?

Yes

Yes

No

No

According to The Telegraph, the 23-year-old is currently on the Eagles’ radar. And if they manage to land him, for White, he would be the perfect man to replace Benteke.

“I think he’d be a big upgrade on Benteke,” the Get French Football News writer said. “I think that Edouard is probably just a lot more dynamic than Benteke. His pace and finishing is brilliant.

“But I know that Benteke is a very specific type of player and that works for someone like Palace.”

Edouard has really enjoyed his time in Scotland, scoring 22 goals in all competitions last season.

Whether that would translate into English football remains to be seen. But if Palace are indeed in the market for a new striker as deadline day draws closer, then the former Paris Saint-Germain youth product certainly looks worth taking a punt on.
