Premier League sides eyeing Edouard
Edouard made the move to Celtic on a permanent basis in 2018, departing PSG for around £9m.
And the Frenchman has since gone on to enjoy a very solid stint at Parkhead.
All told, in 163 outings across all competitions, Edouard has found the net 81 times, and provided 36 assists.
And though Celtic are not having the greatest season so far, the 23-year-old himself has continued to produce, with 20 goals and four assists in 35 appearances.
Such fine form has, unsurprisingly, seen Edouard garner interest from outside of Scotland.
Teams such as Arsenal and West Ham have previously been credited with an interest in the hitman, whose current Celtic deal only runs until 2022.
It was also claimed last month that Leicester City could face competition from both the Gunners and Aston Villa in the race to sign the Frenchman.

Arsenal eyeing Edouard
Now, on Monday, a fresh update concerning Edouard has been provided by the Telegraph.
According to the British outlet, Arsenal are competing with Leicester and a handful of Europe’s biggest clubs for the Celtic hitman.
However, the Telegraph go on to claim that it is Brendan Rodgers’ side who remain the favourites to sign Edouard, though the Gunners are understood to have not given up hope of persuading the striker to move to the Emirates.
In terms of a potential fee for the former PSG man, it is believed a sum in the region of £15-£20m is expected to be enough to land him:
