Arsenal have identified Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard as a possible replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Aubameyang will have a year left to run on his existing contract in June with Manchester United, Barcelona and PSG all believed to be keen on signing the 30-year-old.

But Mikel Arteta is looking to add to his striker force regardless if Aubameyang stays or goes and has set his sights on Edouard, according to reports.

The 22-year-old has scored 61 goals in 125 appearances for Celtic since joining them from PSG in 2018, making him a fan favourite for those using this bonus code, 27 of which he netted this season until the campaign was suspended due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

The France Under-21 international is also believed to have attracted the attention of both Leicester City and Everton, who could be involved in £30million transfer war with the Gunners.

Despite the reported interest shown in him, Edouard has recently hinted that he is in no rush to leave Parkhead:

“It’s something incredible.

“When we go home after it’s been an unforgettable night and when we play at Celtic Park on a European night, I really enjoy the atmosphere.

“I really appreciate what the fans do and I hope it continues that way.”

Arsenal will now have to decide what to do with Aubameyang.

The striker is reportedly demanding £300,000-a-week to remain at the Emirates, which is a even more than the JackpotJoy welcome offer, and with no contract extension on the horizon, the Gunners may well decide to cash in on their club captain rather than risk losing him on a free next summer.
