Inter Milan want Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard, Leicester City are also keen. As reported by calcio mercato. He has had a great season at Celtic and has scored 22 goals for them in all competitions. He is still 23 years old and can be a good long term option for many teams. Inter board has shown interest in him. But they have not made any bid or offer for him yet. Edouard’s contract will end next year so Celtic have to sell him in this transfer window or else he will become a free agent next year.
Inter do have financial problems and they will have to sell few players to get a profit of 80 million euros from this transfer window. They have interests from few clubs and will like to sell players before June 30. Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid are keen on Lautaro Martinez. Also Chelsea are pushing really hard for Lukaku’s return. Although Lukaku will most likely stay at Inter as he is in Inzaghi’s plans for the next season. But if Inter make one of these deals then they would have to find a striker. Hence they have shown interest in Odsonne Edouard.
Inter want Celtic striker Edouard but Leicester lead the chase
According to the reports, Leicester City are ahead of Inter for signing Edouard. They have struggled in games when Jamie Vardy is not fit. They even tried Harvy Barnes at front who is a winger. Although Iheanacho has played good in the 2nd half of the season, he is much better in a front two. So Leicester should look to sign Edouard as a backup for Vardy and probably replace him in the future. Brendon Rogers knows about Edouard when he was Celtic. This also gives Leicester benefit for signing him.
Inter will have to compete with Leicester if they want to sign him.
