English Premier League outfit Arsenal are reportedly linked with a move for Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard this summer transfer window and has been tipped to be a replacement for French striker Alexandre Lacazette.

The former Lyon striker is being linked away from the Emirates Stadium because of for lack of playing time, and manager Mikel Arteta has been advised to do away with him in order to cash in for other transfer deals.

However, it is claimed that this is the best opportunity for Arsenal to sign the French U-21 striker as Celtic are no longer in the Champions League, a development that could make it easy to convince the player.

The Celtic striker has been tipped to have the prospect to succeed at the Emirates Stadium but some pundits claim the Gunners already have Eddie Nketiah who will be able to fit in.

Meanwhile, the summer transfer window continues to be busy for the North London club but what has not been witnessed is the exit of players and that is expected to happen before the end of the summer transfer window.

It is not clear who will be leaving and Alexandre Lacazette might also remain at the club, pending on his performance during the preseason.
