West Ham planning Edouard move?

West Ham United are lining up a January move for Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard, a report from The Star claims.

The Hammers recently sold Sebastien Haller to Ajax for around £20m and they have been fancied to land a replacement before the transfer window closes.

The club have already failed with bids to sign Boulaye Dia and Youssef En-Nesyri this month and it is now claimed that they have switched their focus towards Edouard.

Celtic have endured a disappointing season in the Scottish Premiership where they are a staggering 23 points behind Old Firm rivals Rangers with three games in hand.

Amidst this, it has been claimed that they are in need of funds for regular operations and Edouard has been one of the high-profile players linked with a possible departure.

Still, he won't be sold on the cheap and reports claim that the Hammers will need to pay around £35m to prise him away from the Hoops during the ongoing transfer window.

The 23-year-old has been a huge hit during his time at Parkhead. He has bagged an impressive tally of 72 goals and 35 assists from 151 appearances in all competitions.
