Crystal Palace target Odsonne Edouard would be a success in the Premier League, according to The Celtic Way reporter Anthony Haggerty.
Celtic striker Edouard is expected to leave the Scottish Premiership giants before the transfer window shuts next week and new Palace boss Patrick Vieira, who was appointed as Roy Hodgson’s successor last month, has taken an interest.
Premier League rivals Brighton & Hove Albion, who reportedly lodged an £18million bid earlier this month, are also hoping to do business after Edouard entered the final 12 months of his contract at Celtic.
Would Edouard improve Palace's strikeforce?
Edouard has been looking to leave Parkhead for some time, with the striker even changing agents earlier this year in the hope of completing a move.
With Palace yet to score a goal this term, Haggerty believes Edouard would turn the Eagles’ fortunes around.
He told The Transfer Tavern: “If you give the ball to Odsonne Edouard in front of goal, he will score. No doubt about it. He’s a sublimely talented footballer.
“He is France’s all-time top goalscorer for the under-21s as well, so he has talent. He might kick on again by getting the move he wants. A happy Odsonne Edouard is a very good footballer.”
