Arsenal tipped to sign brilliant 28-goal hitman Edouard this summer to solve Aubameyang problem!
Arsenal reportedly look to be the favourites to sign Celtic star Odsonne Edouard, according to the latest insights from the bookies.
Now we all know that Arsenal failed to make any big signings in January, and we also know that Arsenal failed to do any transfer business that would help Mikel Arteta improve the side and help take the club back to the top by the end of the season.
But there is a feeling that Areta will improve the squad in the summer with a few top-class additions, as reports have suggested that he will have around £150 million in the kitty to improve his side in all the key areas of the squad that actually need working on.
And that has led to speculation that Arsenal will try and get a transfer deal done for the impressive Odsonne Edouard, who is making all the right nooses in the game after netting an impressive 28-goals this season.
Callum Wilson, a spokesperson from Oddschecker, is quoted by the Daily Record as explaining that Arsenal’s interest in Edouard could be due to the need to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang amid his ongoing contract saga.
And with so much interest in the young man, the reports suggests that Arsenal are actually leading the chase to try and bring him to the Premier League when the season is up, and the summer transfer window opens up.
Edouard has shone at Celtic and looks an ideal potential long-term replacement for Aubameyang, as the 22-year-old finished with hugely impressive performances for Celtic, and he is well within the budget of Arsenal at that £40 million the Scottish giants are asking.
However, there is a little feeling that he is a few years away from being at the standard it would take to play in the Premier League, meaning that Arsenal could be making a huge risk replacing Aubameyang with this young man.
But it will be interesting to see just how all this plays out in the coming months.
