However, they will likely have to fend off serious interest from some of England's biggest clubs this summer.

Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City are also said to be in the hunt for the 22-year-old, while it now seems like Everton are firmly in the hunt after watching Edouard in action against Kilmarnock and Copenhagen.

It is believed an offer of over £30 million is what it'll take to convince Celtic into selling the French under-21 international.
