Leicester City have almost become the role model of how a football club should be run and a lot of that has come down to their recruitment so often being spot on and they may have smashed it once again if the signing of Odsonne Edouard gets over the line, according to former Foxes defender Steve Howey.
It is a signing that makes sense as he appears to have outgrown both Celtic and the SPFL so, a move to the Premier League to work under his former boss Brendan Rodgers would be a sensible and safe option.
Will Leicester sign Edouard?
With Jamie Vardy now 34-years-old, signing a young striker in Edouard could prove to be a very astute piece of business by the Foxes, something Howey was quick to praise when he spoke exclusively to Transfer Tavern:
“I’ve watched him a few times despite Celtic being poor this season and Rodgers will know all about him and what he’s like both on and off the pitch.
“That would be a very good acquisition in my book and it will certainly help out the lads that they already have in that position.”
After a second successive year missing out on Champions League qualification on the final day of the season, Rodgers will want to add as much quality to his squad as possible to ensure it doesn’t become a hat-trick.
Edouard is still only 23-years old but his finishing and movement make him seem like a seasoned veteran so Leicester will be hoping that translates into the Premier League.
