English Premier League outfit Arsenal have been linked with the signature of Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard and are expected to make a move for him in the summer transfer window.

The situation now gets clear for the North London outfit to make the move as Odsonne Edouard admits he wants to play at a higher level than the Scottish league.

Through his goals, Odsonne Edouard made Celtic the Scottish champions for the ninth successive times and finished top scorer with 22 goals in 27 appearances.

In an interview with Telefoot, he said he has been with the Scottish giants for three tears and he is looking forward to a higher challenge at the right time.

The 22-year-old noted that he is focused on finishing the season with Celtic but he will have to make the right decision when the time is ripe but he failed to mention the country he would love to go.

The North London outfit are interested in the signature of Odsonne Edouard and have tipped him to replace Alexandre Lacazette at the club with the French man not sure of staying at the Emirates Stadium beyond this season.

Arsenal have continued to struggle with goal-scoring with Gabon forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang not in the best of form and the former Lyon striker is not able to help to fill the gap.

Odsonne Edouard could be the deal for the Spanish boss as he is younger and have proven to have all it takes for the bigger level he hopes for.

However, Alexandre Lacazette will not be lacking in options of where to go if he is to leave Arsenal in the summer window as he is attracting interest from Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid and the Italian Serie A giants Juventus. He will also be welcomed at his former club, Lyon.
