This summer has seen Edouard linked with several Premier League clubs such as Leicester City, Crystal Palace and Brighton, but Nixon has reported that Russian side Rubin Kazan have lodged a £15.4 million bid for the striker.
Do you think Celtic should go all out for Giakoumakis?
Considering how well new signing Kyogo Furuhashi has taken to life at Celtic having already scored seven goals in eight games for the Bhoys, the thought of losing Edouard may not be as bad as initially thought.
What have these Celtic fans been saying?
“Nope. Don’t sell him. He made the difference yesterday. Keep him and allow him to go for free next summer.”
“Yeah we are losing the league”
“Shambles if he’s sold now with a few days left of the window scrambling about looking for a replacement. If you’ve any ambition to win the league n get into CL groups next year he stays.”
“Shambles if we sell him now. 4 days to get a replacement. Worth far more to us being here for the season.”
“Can’t believe folk want to sell him”
“Can’t accept that if we want to win the league we can’t sell Eddy”
With Celtic looking to regain the SPFL title from their city rivals Rangers after finishing an embarrassing 25 points behind the Gers, selling one of their top players would be a risky move, especially for a relatively low fee as they will owe Paris Saint-Germain money due to their 50% sell-on clause.
If the Bhoys can keep Edouard until next summer, win the league and have a chance of getting Champions League football, losing him on a free may not be as bad of an idea instead of losing him for cheap this window and potentially not bringing in a suitable replacement.
