Arsenal transfer news continues to come thick and fast with Celtic star Odsonne Edouard on their radar and former Hoops ace Frank McGarvey reckons he could be on the move this summer

Arsenal could land Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard for £20m this summer.

That’s the view of former Hoops player Frank McGarvey, who believes the striker and Celtic would find it difficult to turn down such an offer.

Mikel Arteta’s Gunners have been linked with a switch for the talented Frenchman in recent weeks.

The 22-year-old has 62 goals in 126 appearances for the Scottish champions that has unsurprisingly seen Premier League clubs take notice.

And with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's future unclear, Edouard has been earmarked as a potential replacement.

McGarvey reckons Edouard would be a cheap option for any interested parties should a bid of around £20m come in when the transfer window opens.

"I just love watching Edouard. He has that bit of magic in his feet, and he reminds me of Charlie Nicholas,” he told the Scottish Sun.

"You just know if he gets the ball just outside of the box the other team are in trouble.

"Edouard has that ability to produce something out of nothing because he has such quick feet.

"I think someone will come in this summer and put £20m on the table for him. You can’t blame Celtic for taking it, especially in the current climate.

"I’ll be sorry to see him go because he is an outstanding footballer. His temperament and his ability are genuinely top class.

"I know people talk about players staying on for 10-in-a-row but I don’t know if all players have that emotional connection.

"For the likes of Scott Brown, Callum McGregor and James Forrest, who have all been there throughout that run, you know how much it will mean to them.

"But we live in the real world, and I am not too sure if someone comes in and offers massive money that Edouard would be able to say no to it.”

Edouard is under contract with Celtic until the summer of 2022.
