Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard has been told to join either Arsenal or Manchester United when the time comes to leave the Scottish champions.

As reported by the Daily Star, Kris Boyd believes that the Frenchman is good enough to play at the very top in the Premier League.

For what it’s worth, if it’s the Premier League he heads form it should for one of the giants, Manchester United or Arsenal, and not, with respect to a Brighton or Southampton. But I’ve got a funny feeling he’ll have to go and prove himself first at one of those clubs.

Edouard has been heavily linked with a move away from Celtic recently, so would he be a good signing for the Gunners?

Edouard would be more of a long-term signing for Arsenal, but it may not be the worst deal to consider.

If Arsenal are thinking towards more of an Alexandre Lacazette replacement, Edouard would certainly fit the bill.

The former Paris Saint-Germain youngster has been prolific in front of goal for Celtic and is already starring for the French U21s – where he linked up brilliantly with Matteo Guendouzi during the most recent international break.

He has the pace to be a real threat in the Premier League, while also boasting the physical presence that would make him a nightmare for defenders. With Champions League and Europa League experience under his belt, the 21-year-old has plenty of room left to develop into as well.

There has always been some concern about buying from Celtic in the past, it can be hard to judge how success in the Scottish Premiership ranks in the Premier League, but Arsenal know from Kieran Tierney that the Hoops produce quality players and Edouard looks to be no different.
