Having initially joined on loan, the Hoops made his stay permanent in 2018, with Edouard becoming an important member of the first-team squad. In the ongoing season, U21 France international has been a rare bright spot for the Scottish giants, who have struggled a great deal till date and are ready to be dethroned as the Hoops.
Although not always in full flow, the French striker’s returns of 20 goals and 4 assists in 32 matches is excellent. His continued progress has alerted Arsenal, Leicester and Aston Villa. Gunners have long been linked with a potential move for Odsonne and the upcoming transfer window could be the perfect time to launch the offensive for him.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang might be showing some signs of resurgence, but there could still soon be a need for the centre-forward. Recent reports suggest that Alexandre Lacazette could be ready to leave the London giants in the summer, while the likes of Eddie Nketiah and Folarin Balogun also face uncertain futures at Arsenal.
Hence, it might become a necessity for the Gunners to enter the market for a striker, with Odsonne a viable target. However, they face stiff competition from Leicester and Aston Villa.
