Report: Wolves have considered Celtic's Odsonne Edouard

Wolverhampton Wanderers are said to have considered a move for Odsonne Edouard.

According to a report from The Telegraph today, lots of sides have been eyeing the Celtic striker.

Edouard has been with his current club since 2017, joining the Hoops on loan from Paris Saint-Germain initially.

He turned his move permanent in the summer of 2018.

His time in Scotland has been pretty successful; he’s scored 85 goals in 175 games for Celtic and won seven trophies so far.

The main issue for Celtic is that Edouard is now into the final year of his contract.

He can leave for nothing next year, and they’re currently looking for around £15 million (Daily Record).

The Telegraph say Crystal Palace are keen on the 23-year-old, but Wolves are mentioned as having considered the player.

The positions of priority at the moment for Wolves are centre-back and central midfield.

But Rafa Mir could yet leave, which would leave only Raul Jimenez and Fabio Silva as the centre-forward options.

Edouard would be a good signing

Wolves need to focus their attention on a centre-back and central midfielder, but moving for Edouard would be a positive move.

The Scottish Premiership has helped to develop some household names in recent years, such as Virgil van Dijk, Kieran Tierney, John McGinn and Andy Robertson.

Edouard is very much among the best players in the division.

He didn’t have the best of seasons last term but then, very few Celtic players had good campaigns as Rangers stormed to the league title.

As someone with pace, power and good positioning, he’d still be a decent addition for Wolves.
