Twitter is on fire about possible transfers regarding Celtic ace Odsonne Edouard with Aston Villa the latest to enter the fray for the Frenchman amongst rumours over Ivan Toney and Ollie Watkins.
The rumours of Edouard away are nothing new but tonight the following have been circulating in both the papers and on Twitter.
The list of clubs wanting French Eddie grows by the day, however there are some peculiar links to this story.
Ollie Watkins is available at 18 million pounds and apparently Villa are in the market for him, if this is the case then it will mean that Brentford will be needing a new forward meaning that a bif for Toney may well be in the pipeline.
What looks certain is that Toney and Watkins are away this year with both unwilling to continue in their current divisions, If Watkins goes to Villa it will quieten the chatter over them signing Edouard.
However if Watkins finds a club who will activate the 18 million pound release clause then Celtic will be easily outbid for Toney by a Brentford team who will need a front line striker in next seasons bid to be promoted.
Should Celtic want Toney, now is the time, we need to put in a bid that will entice the club with the player already reported keen on a move to Paradise.
Keeping Eddie will likely come down to Champions League qualification, should we lose him late in the window to a one off play off would be a disaster.
Announce Toney, give Edouard every reason to sign an extension and cover our bases if he doesn’t, this isn’t any other season, this is iconic, time to spend and secure.
