TMW: Milan and Arsenal part of five-team shootout to land €30m-rated Celtic star

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could be part of a five-team shootout to land Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard, according to a report.

Milan were heavily linked with a move for Edouard during the January transfer window, but a number of reports both from Scotland and in Italy claimed that Celtic wanted €30million for his sale, a bit too much for the Rossoneri.

According to TMW, the competition for Milan to battle with ahead of the summer has increased as the young Frenchman is attracting interest from a number of different clubs. The report mentions Arsenal and Roma, but also now Aston Villa and above all Leicester.

The Foxes are coached by Brendan Rodgers, who knows the striker very well since he coached him during his time at Celtic. In short, there are many suitors for the player, meaning in the summer there will probably be a real auction to grab the striker who has 20 goals in 32 appearances across all competitions this season.
