Some Spurs fans have been left excited to see the North Londoners linked with a move for Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard ahead of the summer transfer window.
Edouard has been prolific in front on goal since making the move to Scotland three years ago. The 22-year-old has notched up a sensational tally of 27 goals and 19 assists in 45 games this season (transfermarkt.com).
The Times report that Spurs have regularly sent scouts to watch Edouard in action this campaign and have been left impressed by what they have seen.
It is revealed that the Lilywhites view the Frenchman as the ideal back up to Harry Kane, with the report asserting that the PSG academy graduate will cost around £25million this summer.
Some Spurs fans are convinced that Edouard would be a great signing for that price and the perfect man to serve as Kane’s understudy.
Here’s how they reacted to the rumours linking the club with a move for the Celtic star:
Odsonne Edouard young Celtic striker has been linked with Spurs for many weeks & his form monitored regularly. Watched Bhoys many times & this lad has impressed me, clinical goalscorer, good team player as his assists bear out, & movement excellent. Big question is Kane? #COYS

quality player – Celtic is a great proving ground for talent – look at Virgil van Dijk.

Édouard is different gravy. Every top team after a striker should be looking at him. If we had a budget, he'd be my top choice striker at Spurs, followed by Osimhen https://t.co/xyZ7hga0QC

Would be a great signing and achievable, but in reality we’ll pass up the offer and then be linked again when he’s 50/60mil like Moussa dembele

Anyone saying he’s not good enough? Look at Dembele smashing it for Lyon

He is INSANE, would be the perfect ST signing for us

Spurs Web Opinion
Edouard is not just a goalscorer but his hold up play and vision are also excellent traits. While there is no doubt that he can play alongside Kane, the reality is that he would have to play second fiddle to the England captain, at least in his first season at Spurs. Therefore, I am not sure if the Frenchman will be keen on moving to North London when Kane is still the club.
