The Lowdown: Romano’s update

It looked almost certain the French forward would be swapping Celtic Park for the King Power this summer in a move that would reunite him with former Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers.

Edouard agreed on personal terms with the Foxes and told friends he would be joining Leicester, who were closing in on agreeing a fee.

However, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano shared an update on Thursday, revealing Leicester are now looking to seal a deal for RB Salzburg striker Patson Daka after failing to reach an agreement with Celtic for Edouard.

Celtic eye move for 31 y/o that Strachan dubbed "fantastic", McKay is wasting his time - opinion

  Celtic eye move for 31 y/o that Strachan dubbed Celtic are interested in signing Scottish full-back Barry Douglas on a free transfer this summer.The Hoops will have a busy summer ahead of them but as well as improving their first-team options, they can’t afford to hinder the opportunities for young players coming through.

The Latest: Daily Mail report

The Daily Mail shared the news on Daka, Leicester and Edouard, claiming the Foxes had lined up a move for the Hoops star since January.

However, their attentions have now turned to Daka, who has also demanded less salary-wise than Edouard.

The report adds that Edouard is considering staying at Parkhead for the 2021/22 campaign to see out his contract and leave as a free agent next summer.

The Verdict: Mixed news for Celtic?

This could be bittersweet news for new Celtic CEO Dominic McKay and manager Ange Postecoglou.

Postecoglou may well be the happier of the two should Edouard decide to stay. He’s netted 83 goals in 168 games for the Hoops, so the new man in charge at Parkhead would have a free-scoring forward available for his first season in the dugout.

However, McKay may have his concerns, as Edouard, should his situation remain the same, could discuss a pre-contract agreement with a club outside of Scotland in the new year.

Celtic were after £40m for the striker just last summer, but two years on may end up receiving nothing, a bitter pill to swallow for the new chief.
