Celtic's Odsonne Edouard 'no longer a target for Borussia Dortmund'


Borussia Dortmund have cooled their interest in Celtic's Odsonne Edouard, according to SPORT1, via the Daily Record.

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.

Dortmund were one of the other clubs who were said to be keen as they sought an option to accompany Erling-Braut Haaland, however it's claimed that they deem a move for Edouard as 'too expensive'.

While it remains to be seen whether the other interested parties will make a move, it's no doubt a big boost to Celtic to see off one of big-name suitors.

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.
