Odsonne Edouard has been extensively linked with a summer transfer away from Parkhead.
According to Football Insider, the Frenchman has told his buddies that he would be joining Leicester City from Celtic.
Edouard has already made his decision and is poised to join Brendan Rodgers’ Premier League team.
The player’s personal conditions have been agreed upon, and Leicester is finalizing the framework of the transaction with Celtic.
The Foxes needed to bolster their attacking options, and the 23-year-old could prove to be an excellent long-term acquisition.
The Frenchman scored 22 goals in all competitions last season for Celtic and is expected to grow with experience.
Edouard’s contract with Celtic expires in one year and he is expected to be available for a decent fee.
If he adjusts to English football, his acquisition might prove to be a significant value for Leicester.
The Premier League team will seek a successor for Jamie Vardy in the near future, and the Frenchman fits the bill.
Rodgers worked with Edouard at Celtic, and he might be the one to unleash the striker’s potential.
The striker was offered a new contract at Parkhead, but he turned down various offers in favor of a transfer to the Premier League.
Edouard was also being courted by Arsenal and West Ham United, but his transfer to the King Power Stadium is now imminent.
