Odsonne Edouard set for Leicester switch over Arsenal
Leicester City are set to sign a £ 15m transfer deal for Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard.
The talented young Frenchman shone during his time in Scotland and it is not surprising that he is now heading for a move to the Premier League.

Edouard scored 22 goals in all competitions last season and appears to have all the attributes to be a good replacement for Jamie Vardy at Leicester in the long run.
According to Sun, a £ 15m deal appears to have been agreed in principle and is close to being finalized in what could be a major blow to Arsenal.
The Gunners have also been linked as admirers of Edouard of the Sun, although this report suggested that if they lost Alexandre Lacazette, they would most likely switch only for him.

Edouard could not be an urgent priority for Arsenal, although the 23-year-old would certainly add something to Mikel Arteta’s squad.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was not at his best last season while other offensive players like Nicolas Pepe and Willian were also quite inconsistent.
Arsenal could regret it if Edouard is to shine for Leicester in the years to come.
