Edouard, 23, joined Celtic in 2017, initially on loan before making his switch from PSG permanent the following season.

Since joining the Hoops, Edouard has enjoyed a decent rise which has been reflected in his goalscoring numbers.

After featuring in 162 matches, the highly-rated striker has racked up 81 goals and 36 assists, in all competitions.

However, during what has been considered as a prolonged dip in form, the French-born marksman has struggled to replicate his best form during this campaign.

According to a recent report from Eurosport, one club that have been heavily linked with a potential summer move is Brendan Rodger’s Foxes.

However, despite the player reportedly being valued at just £20m, the Foxes have cooled their interest due to the striker’s underwhelming season.

It has been claimed that Celtic had hoped their main marksman could spark a bidding war but have been left disappointed that, that has so far failed to happen.
