Some Celtic fans have made their opinions known about the latest transfer update involving their striker Odsonne Edouard in the ongoing January window.

French outlet Get French Football News recently reported that AS Monaco have made an approach to sign Edouard, but the Hoops have rejected the offer. The report goes onto state that Celtic have no intention of selling the former Paris Saint-Germain man this month.

Would Monaco be a step-down for Edouard?

They're a small club!

They also claim that Borussia Dortmund are also interested in the striker while saying that Monaco were close to signing Edouard in the summer of 2019.

The GFFN Twitter handle posted the news on social media. Many Hoops fans took to it and made their opinions known about it.

Celtic signed Edouard on a permanent basis in the summer of 2018 for a club-record fee of £9million. He had spent the 2017-18 campaign on loan at the club, sharing the dressing room with Moussa Dembele.

This season, the Frenchman has been in impressive form for the Hoops. He has made 34 appearances in all competitions, scoring 19 times and racking up 15 assists on the way. In the Premiership, the striker has scored 15 times in 19 games for the club.

This is already an improvement on last season in terms of contributions goal, as Edouard had scored 22 times and had picked up eight assists in the previous campaign.

What do we think?

Celtic can’t afford to lose Edouard in this month, considering they will have only four days to sort out a replacement. They can sell him in the summer and have enough time to replace him with an able striker.
