Celtic rejected Monaco offer for their striker Odsonne Edouard

According to Get French Football News, Scottish club Celtic have rejected transfer offer for their player Odsonne Edouard from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco in this transfer window.

The Hoops refused to do business with the French club on the 22-year-old’s signing, even though they have already signed Patryk Klimala from Jagiellonia Białystok this month while Leigh Griffith has also returned to form.

Robert Moreno’s side, who had narrowly missed out on signing Edouard last summer, were again rebuffed in their attempts by the Bhoys this January.

The GFFN report suggests that the French footballer is currently happy playing in Glasgow and therefore has no intention of leaving his current side.

The Frenchman first came to the Bhoys in 2017 on a loan deal that was later made permanent on a four-year deal in what still stands as the club’s biggest transfer, and since then he has racked up 51 league appearances and scored 31 goals for his club.

The former Paris Saint-Germain youngster started on the bench for Celtic’s match with Ross County on Saturday, but climbed off the bench in the second half to score twice in a 3-0 win for the Hoops.

Speaking earlier this season, the France u21 international opened up on transfer speculation, saying:

“Each player has his own career, his own path. As far as I’m concerned, at the moment I am here and I’ve got a long contract — I’m really enjoying what I’m doing.

“I just want to keep enjoying playing for Celtic and then we’ll see what happens. But there is no plan.”

Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund were also interested in availing his services earlier in the season but their interest cooled off after they landed Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Braut Haaland this January.
