Odsonne Edouard has hinted that could stay with Celtic next season as they look to win their 10th league title in a row.

The 22-year-old has been in stunning form since moving to Parkhead in the summer of 2017, with the striker proving himself as one of the top young strikers in Europe.

This included scoring 21 goals in 27 appearances this as the Bhoys secured another league title.

As a result this has led to significant interest from clubs on the continent, including Arsenal and Leicester City who are credited with an interest.

It has, however, been reported that the striker has been offered a new deal to stay at Parkhead - something which Edouard fuelled with talk of plans for next season.

Speaking to Celtic TV, Edouard said: “Every season we want to win the title.

“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.”

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

Few can argue with the interest that Odsonne Edouard is attracting.

The striker's form for Celtic has been outstanding, and in my opinion, he is deserving of an opportunity to stretch himself in a better standard of league.

A move to Arsenal or Leicester City would be huge for him, and more than that I believe that his skillset is perfectly suited to being a success at either of those clubs.

Celtic will be doing all that they can to keep hold of him - and rightly so.

However it seems that any move to give him a new contract will be more of an effort to drive up their asking price, rather than convincing him to stay for another three or four years.
