Reports say that Liverpool are keen to sign Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard this summer. The former PSG man has scored more than 20 goals every season for the last three. His record while in Scotland is a frankly ridiculous 81 goals and 35 assists in only 161 games.

Liverpool’s famed front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino has not been the unstoppable force this season that it was in seasons past. The trio that couldn’t stop scoring seem to have forgotten how to get it into the back of the net recently.

Jürgen Klopp and the transfer team could be looking for reinforcements in the summer, and the rumour is that their eyes have looked towards the 23-year-old French player. However, the current Liverpool manager may have some competition from his predecessor. Brendan Rodgers, who signed Edouard to Celtic before then moving back to the Premier League to take the reins at Leicester City, is very fond of the player and could be interested himself.

The summer transfer window is approaching quickly. As our elite squad of injured players each return to fitness in the coming months, it will be fascinating to see in what areas the committee deems it necessary to strengthen.
