Liverpool have ended their interest in signing Odsonne Edouard from Celtic during the summer transfer window.



The Frenchman has enjoyed another fine campaign with the Hoops, registering 20 goals from 37 appearances.

He has only 14 months left on his contract, and he is expected to be sold when the transfer window opens.

The Reds have been linked with Edouard on multiple occasions, but they appear to have officially ended their pursuit.

The club were aiming to negotiate a swap deal involving Divock Origi, but the Belgian has no interest in joining the Hoops.

Meanwhile, Edouard is not keen on playing second fiddle to Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota for the striker's role.

Edouard could still make the move to the Premier League with interest from Arsenal, Leicester City and West Ham United.

The Hammers are reckoned as the favourites to land his signature with no real competition for the centre-forward role.

Michail Antonio is the only senior striker in the squad, and he has struggled with multiple injury concerns in recent years.
