Celtic forward Odsonne Edouard linked with Premier League move

The 23-year-old faced an uncertain future at Parkhead with just a year remaining on his contract at the club and Palace leapt.

But what do you know about the signing of the Eagles? Here are five things you should know about Edouard.

The Parisian

Born in French Guiana, Odsonne Edouard grew up in Paris and began his career with the amateur team of AF Bobigny before joining the Paris Saint-Germain youth academy at the age of 13.

The forward took little time to make an impact with PSG after scoring 25 goals in 22 appearances for the club’s Under-17 team, before continuing his powerful form in front of goal as he progressed in age groups.

Edouard signed a professional contract with PSG in 2016 and was even part of the first team in several pre-season friendlies.

The loan years

In 2016-17, the decision was taken to allow Odsonne Edouard to leave PSG on loan with a transfer to Ligue 2 with Toulouse being the destination.

The striker made 17 appearances for the club and scored one goal, his first in the professional game.

It might not have been the most impressive comeback, but it was enough to convince his next club to take a step.

Try before you buy

Odsonne Edouard made a one-season loan at Celtic in the summer of 2017, the start of his journey with the club.

During his loan spell, the striker scored 11 goals for the club in all competitions, a tally that convinced them to make the move permanent for a record £ 8million.

An impeccable track record

Edouard wasted no time in making an impression with Celtic.

Upon signing with the club, the player scored 22 times in his first permanent season at Parkhead, before scoring 28 goals in his second campaign and 22 last time.

He also played a key role in two Scottish Premiership title wins, which took the club’s record to nine consecutive wins, before Old Firm rivals Rangers ended their quest for a historic tenth. .

No stranger to the interests of the Premier League

You don’t score 86 goals in 179 appearances for Celtic without generating substantial interest from English clubs.

Arsenal, Leicester City, Newcastle United and Brighton are all among the clubs which have been linked with Edward over the past two years.

However, Celtic’s reluctance to lose their star striker made any decision difficult to accept.

But, with his contract expiring next year, it’s clear the Bhoys’ hand has been forced with interest from Crystal Palace.

International ambitions

Edouard will certainly have the hope of breaking into the French national team at the end of his summer transfer.

The 23-year-old has represented the Blues in all age groups from Under-17s to Under-21s, with an impressive record of 17 goals in just 14 under-21 appearances for France.

Considering the level of competition in the domestic setup with Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema, it’s no surprise that a senior cap was hard to come by.

But with time on his side, Edouard hopes to succeed as soon as possible.
