Former Scottish Premiership player tells Newcastle to sign this Celtic star
And speaking to Football Insider, the younger Bruce revealed he had urged his father to pursue the Frenchman's signature.
“I have told dad about Edouard so we’ll see,” the former Hull City and Ipswich Town centre-back said.
“When you look at going into Europe to buy a top striker now - Newcastle paid £40 million for Joelinton - the price teams demand nowadays for top strikers is huge.
“When you think of what it might cost to get him out of Celtic, it might be worth a punt.
“Whether you could get him for £20 million or £30 million... I know it sounds like a lot of money but in today’s market, if he comes and does anything near what he does [in Scotland] in the English Premier League then it would be great.”
