Newcastle United: Magpies keen on Odsonne Edouard transfer

Newcastle United: Magpies keen on Odsonne Edouard transfer - Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

Newcastle United are reportedly keen on a move for Odsonne Edouard once the summer transfer window opens.

The Lowdown: Newcastle need a back-up striker

The St. James’ Park faithful have certainly struggled at the best of times when Callum Wilson has been injured in some parts of the 2020/21 term, and so they need somebody capable of stepping in and banging in the goals that the former AFC Bournemouth star offers.

Would Edouard be a good signing?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Wilson has scored no fewer than 12 times in total across all competitions so far this campaign, while between Joelinton, Andy Carroll and Dwight Gayle, they only have eight goals (Transfermarkt), highlighting that the North East club must find a player that is much more reliable in front of goal.

The Latest: Newcastle keen on Edouard

As per the Daily Record, the Tyneside club are keen on signing Edouard, who is currently valued at £20m by Celtic.

However, they face stiff competition from the likes of Aston Villa, Arsenal and Leicester City for his signature in the Premier League, as well as AC Milan and Napoli from the Serie A.

The Verdict: Newcastle must sign Edouard

The Magpies must at least try to fend off the competition to sign Edouard, as he is the kind of player that they so desperately need.

Yes, the Scottish Premiership is certainly not of the standard of the English top flight, but 28 goal contributions in 40 games in total over all competitions this season (Transfermarkt) is not a record to be sniffed at.

Dubbed as a ‘magnificent’ plater by Neil Lennon back in December, the French striker clearly has what it takes to make the step up, and at 23 years of age, he will only get better.

Nonetheless, the Toon may not get a better opportunity to add another potent forward to their books.
