Powerful 22-goal hitman Edouard opens up and drops transfer hint, with Chelsea keen
Chelsea target Odsonne Edouard has hinted his immediate future will be in Glasgow by setting his sights on doing more damage to Rangers and firing Celtic to history.
Frank Lampard has already agreed a deal to sign Hakim Ziyech, and Timo Werner, but that has not stopped speculation that a move for Edouard could also be made.
Edouard hit 28 goals for Celtic last season as they equalled a Scottish record by sealing a ninth consecutive title win, but the French striker’s future has been the subject of speculation following his impressive form.
We have been linked with a move, well were linked before we managed to secure a deal for Werner, and could even eye up a possible deal if he are looking to add to the attack.
However, the 22-year-old is focused on helping Celtic reach their long-held target: “Every season we want to win the title,” he told Celtic TV.
“This year is nine in-a-row, and next year I hope it is 10 in-a-row. This will be historic for the club.
“It’s very important for the club, for the fans, for the team, for all of the staff. We now need to go back to work for next season, and I hope that we can win this title for 10 in-a-row.
“As for season highlights, the goal at Ibrox back in September is one of my best goals of the season, scored in an important game. I’m happy about that, and now I want go back to working hard, to try and score again against Rangers.”
At the end of the day, if we wanted the man, we would have got him so maybe the best thing for him is to stay in the Scottish League, as Stamford Bridge would have been the best move for him to make.[the_ad id=”164″]
