A lot of the Celtic fanbase are calling for Odsonne Edouard to be given a new contract following an interview the club posted where the forward talks about winning the Scottish Premiership this season.
With the player reportedly a target for Arsenal and Newcastle United, fans are worried the 22 year-old might follow in the footsteps of his fellow Frenchman Moussa Dembele who departed for Lyon. Supporters want to see him sign a contract to show a statement of intent from the Hoops that they are determined to keep the player and also a sign that Edouard wants to stay.
The French striker has had an amazing season, scoring 21 goals and providing 12 assists in 27 league appearances, per Transfermarkt, whilst also scoring six goals and contributing with seven assists in 18 appearances in other competitions including in Europe.
His impressive tally in the league means he has scored one goal every 96 minutes and places him as top goal scorer, nine goals ahead of Rangers striker Jermain Defoe in second, via BBC Sport.
Speaking to the club in an exclusive interview set for use in a special edition of weekly Celtic magazine ‘Celtic View’, Edouard said: “It’s been a great season for the team and for me, so I’m very happy. Without question, this team deserves to be champions.”
Reacting to his comments, loads of Bhoys expressed their wish for him to sign a new deal and stay at Paradise, unsurprisingly so given his impressive goals record…
