Michael Brown has suggested to Football Insider that Leeds United could be tempting for Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard.
The former Leeds midfielder believes that if Edouard thinks that he will play regularly in the Premier League next season, then the former Paris Saint-Germain striker will fancy a move to Elland Road in the summer transfer window.
The Mirror reported earlier this month that Leeds are planning to make a move for the 22-year-old striker if they are able to win promotion from the Championship to the Premier League at the end of the season.
The Englishman told Football Insider about Edouard and Leeds: “If he feels he’s going to get game time then yeah, for sure, I think he sees the Premier League and Leeds United, it’s such an attractive club for anybody.
The Premier League is what interests every player and if Edouard feels like he’s going to get in the team and play, because you can go to a Premier League club and be in and around squad-wise, then yeah.”
According to WhoScored, Edouard scored 22 goals in 27 Scottish premiership matches, and scored three goals and provided two assists in six Europa League games for Celtic this past season.
During the 2018-19 campaign, the 22-year-old striker scored 15 goals and provided six assists in 32 Scottish Premiership matches, and scored two goals in eight Europa League games for the Glasgow giants, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk.
Leeds are hoping to play in the Premier League next season for the first time since 2004, while Celtic are aiming to make it 10 Scottish Premiership titles in a row during the 2020-21 campaign.
