Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard has switched agents, prompting further talk that he is looking to leave Parkhead in the not too distant future.
The 22-year-old has joined up with Stellar Group who worked on Kieran Tierney’s move from the Hoops to Arsenal 18 months ago. With the striker not likely to sign a new contract and, with his current deal set to expire in 2022, a departure this month or in the summer looks inevitable.
Considering Edouard’s poor form this season, supporters on Twitter are not particularly fussed about the France Under 21 international leaving, as long as the club get a decent fee for him:
Let him go.

No problem, source the replacement and sell him, he’s done nothing this season.

Get as much as we can for him and move on??
We need to build a new core squad for the next 3/4yrs?

Thought it was a masterstroke keeping him after the summer transfer window, it backfired big time

If he wants to go we should cash in this month and look to invest, 18 months on his contract left so the price will go down. Confident with griff firing on all cylinders and some investment we should be fine

Celtic will find another star player we always do.

Think most of us thought if he didn’t go in the summer he’d be away at the end of the season anyway, he’s probably done us out a few million this season though

I genuinely felt we would be in a state of mourning when he left but u don’t many will notice much he’s in a way did us a favour by looking disinterested

Stellar Group’s good relationship with Arsenal means links with a switch to the Gunners will only increase, although other Premier League teams have been mentioned, including Aston Villa and Crystal Palace. However, a move away from the UK is equally likely with recent reports mentioning that Juventus and AC Milan could be interested.
