Arsenal will reportedly need to make a bid of around £25m in order to lure Odsonne Edouard from Celtic during the next transfer window.

The Frenchman has been in superb form for the Hoops this term and he has amassed 27 goals and 19 assists across all competitions.

His form has caught the eye of the Gunners, who are said to be eyeing a possible replacement for contract rebel Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

According to The Express, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta remains a huge admirer of Odsonne's talents but he won't get him on the cheap from the Scottish champions.

The Hoops parted ways with Kieran Tierney last summer for a deal worth £25m and they are likely to demand a similar fee for the former Paris Saint-Germain graduate.

Meanwhile, Aubameyang's current deal expires at the end of next season and the Gunners board are likely to look at the prospect of selling him unless he puts pen-to-paper on a fresh contract.
