Plenty of Arsenal fans are buzzing at a transfer link to Odsonne Edouard after the Daily Express revealed the price that the north London club must pay to sign him in the summer transfer window.
As per the article, the Gunners have been told that it would cost them in excess of £25 million to prize him away from Celtic, however, former striker Chris Sutton values him at £40 million. The Express also claim that he could be lined up as a potential replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should the Gabonese international leave the club.
Indeed, the 22-year old is enjoying a fine season with the Hoops, scoring 27 goals and providing 19 assists in 45 appearances in all competitions, according to Transfermarkt.
Compare those stats to Aubameyang, who has netted 20 times and made one assist in 32 games this campaign, as per the website. Whilst the 30-year old boasts a higher goal-scoring ratio (62.5 per cent compared to Edouard’s 60), the Frenchman has far more assists.
These AFC supporters buzzed when reading about the transfer link on Twitter:
