Arsenal are reportedly rivalling Leicester City to sign Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard at a bargain price this summer.
Edouard has enjoyed another excellent season for the Hoops, scoring 20 goals in 35 games to catch the eye of Premier League clubs.
The Frenchman has one year remaining on his deal and is expected to be available for just £15million this summer.
Leicester were believed to be leading the race for Edouard, with manager Brendan Rodgers intent on reuniting with the player he brought to Celtic four years ago.
But Arsenal are also keen on the 23-year-old and will battle the Foxes for his signature.
That’s according to the Daily Telegraph , which adds Celtic’s asking price for Edouard has drastically lowered from £40million due to his contract winding down.
But the Bhoys will attempt to include a favourable sell-on clause in any deal struck with one of the player’s suitors.
Rodgers brought Edouard to Celtic Park on a season-long loan from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 and the deal was made permanent the following year for £9million.

Meanwhile, Celtic caretaker manager John Kennedy said last month that Edouard’s future with the club will be resolved this summer.
“When you have talented players, there’s always interest,” said Kennedy.
“So I’ve no doubt there will be interest in Odsonne, as there was last season and all the time he’s been here, but ultimately the club will do the right thing for themselves.
“We want to keep him for as long as we can because of the talent he’s got.
“But there ultimately comes a point, whether contractually or the player’s motivation, when you have to sit down and address that and that will be done in the summer.”
Kennedy added: “For him now it’s having that real killer instinct and continually showing his level and if he does that then goodness knows where it will take him.”
