Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard is interested in testing himself in the Premier League and is open to a move to London, according to reports in England.
West Ham are believed to be frontrunners to sign the France Under 21 international this month as it is thought that both Arsenal and Tottenham would only be prepared to make an offer for the player at the end of the season but any of the big clubs like Real Madrid and even Chelsea could still make a move for the talented forward in the January window.
Edouard’s current asking price is reportedly £35m but a compromise with Celtic could be reached, considering the 23-year-old’s current contract at Parkhead expires in eighteen months’ time.
Hammers boss David Moyes is very keen to bring in a forward before the January transfer window closes, and he has had Edouard watched on a number of occasions this campaign.
However, up until now, West Ham have been eyeing other targets, including Sevilla’s Youssef En-Nesyri, Montpellier’s Gaetan Laborde and Bournemouth’s Joshua King, but as deadline day approaches, a formal approach for Edouard is now being considered.
