Arsenal keen on signing Edouard

Arsenal are reportedly eager to land the signature of Odsonne Edouard from Celtic as they face the possibility of losing Alexandre Lacazette at the end of the season.

Lacazette has been in fine form for the Gunners with three goals from the previous four league games but there are still doubts regarding his future amid the reported interest from Juventus.

According to Bleacher Report, the north London side are not ruling out the potential exit of the former Lyon man, whose contract with the club expires in June 2022.

It is added that Edouard has been earmarked as a potential replacement for his French compatriot following a splendid season for Celtic where he bagged 27 goals and 19 assists across all competitions. 

Edouard is currently valued at around £30m and reports claim that the Gunners could afford his transfer fee, should they sanction the sale of Lacazette this summer.

Lacazette is currently valued at around £45m by Mikel Arteta's side.
