Leeds to swoop for Man Utd and Arsenal transfer target Odsonne Edouard if they gain promotion to Premier League


LEEDS are ready to beat Manchester United and Arsenal to the punch and snap up Odsonne Edouard.

Marcelo Bielsa is set to pounce on the Celtic striker if his side seal promotion to the Premier League.

The 22-year-old Frenchman hit 28 goals in Scotland last season, prior to the campaign being cancelled due to the coronavirus.

The Whites want the Bhoys frontman to replace misfiring striker Patrick Bamford.

And Arsenal need new blood just in case they lose Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Chelsea were also in the hunt until they signed £48million RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.

But the Hoops will be desperate to hang onto their talisman.

Edouard has hit 62 goals in all competitions since joining from Paris Saint-Germain in 2018.

Celtic will try to win a record tenth successive Scottish Premier League title next season.

So they really want to hang on to their big hitman.

But with Leeds set to secure a £150m bonanza with promotion to the Prem for the first time since 2004, money could be no object.

And Arsenal and United may not need to get sucked into an auction.
