3 Replacements For Edouard If He Leaves Celtic Including This 45 Times International Striker

Celtic might have won the treble last season, but there were specific chinks in their armour which was showcased as the season progressed. One problem they had was scoring goals freely since Neil Lennon took over in February. Odsonne Edouard was troubled with injuries, and even Leigh Griffiths wasn’t available. In that time, the club turned to Oliver Burke who started well as a striker but tapered off as the season went by.

The club needs to sign a striker, but they have been further rocked by latest news where Odsonne Edouard is now being wanted by Serie A side Lazio. The Hoops have struggled to score freely ever since Moussa Dembele departed last summer and Edouard also moving away could add more pressure on them. Therefore it is imperative for the club to look for a striker and here are three players they can go after.

Daniel Sturridge

Yeah yeah, we know the argument that is going to be thrown at us. The first thing people would say seeing this name would be that he wouldn’t be available for most of the season to contribute. However, we feel that the English forward has proven his fitness in the past year. The Liverpool man largely remained injury free and played as a backup striker at Liverpool.

The forward scored some crucial goals as well including the one against Chelsea and PSG. He might have lost his extra pace a bit after his injuries, but he is still a natural in front of goal. Lennon will have to utilise him smartly, but he has the potential to score 20 odd goals easily. On a free transfer, he is definitely worth considering.

Sardar Azmoun

Celtic have been linked in the past with this Iranian striker. Azmoun currently plies his trade for Russian heavyweights Rubin Kazan, and he managed 17 goals and seven assists in 33 appearances last season. The forward is known as a livewire in and around the box, and he usually works his socks off on the pitch. Blessed with decent pace and dribbling skills, the 24-year-old would be a great signing as he is at the peak of his career.

Kelechi Iheanacho

The Leicester City forward has found his chances few and far between in the starting eleven with Vardy still going strong. The Nigerian international can be a tough man to defend against as he has that searing pace and impressive dribbling skills. He can be that ‘fox in the box’ (no pun intended), as well as hold up play well when required.

The Nigerian is yet to realise his true potential as he has been playing second fiddle at Leicester and Manchester City in the past few years. The 22-year-old has great potential, and a chance to move to Celtic and play regularly should interest him.
