Crystal Palace have joined Everton, Rubin Kazan and Bordeaux in the race to sign Odsonne Edouard.

New boss Patrick Vieira has watched his side fail to score in their first two EPL matches with the arrival of the French u-21 striker seen as part of the solution to get the South London side into the mid-table position that they enjoyed under Roy Hodgson.

With his contract expiring next June it had been assumed that Edouard would leave Celtic this summer but until now the offers have been slow to come in.

There remains the possibility that the striker could remain at Celtic but if two options come in from the EPL plus other deals in France and Russia it looks likely that Edouard is in the final days of his four year stay at Celtic.

A transfer fee of £15m or more will give Ange Postecoglou some serious funds to reinvest even after Paris Saint Germain pick up their cut on the deal they made in 2018.

Georgios Giakoumakis of VVV Venlo has been strongly linked with Celtic but with little contribution from Albian Ajeti and Leigh Griffiths there could be another striker joining Celtic as well as the Greek international.
