Crystal Palace have been name-checked with an interest in Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard, according to The Scottish Sun.
The Lowdown: Palace set to miss out on Armstrong
Patrick Vieira seemingly wants to bring a forward to Selhurst Park before the transfer window shuts but looks set to miss out on Blackburn Rovers’ Adam Armstrong.
Palace were thought to be leading the way for the 24-year-old just last week, but Southampton have now agreed a fee with Rovers and are finalising personal terms with Armstrong over becoming Danny Ings’ replacement at St Mary’s.
The Latest: Edouard interest
The Scottish Sun shared a transfer story on Monday evening, sharing the Hoops’ interest in Thomas Henry.
The report, which came hours after Sky Sports’ story on Southampton’s hunt for Armstrong, stated that Celtic view the OH Leuven marksman as an ideal replacement for Edouard, with Palace name-checked as one of the clubs who are keen on the latter.
Palace were briefly linked with Edouard last month, and it seems as if they are still tracking the 23-year-old.
Would Edouard be a good signing?
The Verdict: Time for Palace to swoop?
He is into the final 12 months of his Celtic Park deal, so Palace could possibly land the striker for a relatively cut-price fee.
However, if the Eagles are serious about Edouard, they may have to act fast, with arch-rivals Brighton the favourites for the Celtic man’s services at this moment in time.
