‘Arsenal will look at Edouard if Aubameyang goes’ – Celtic warned by Barnes to expect interest


Odsonne Edouard Celtic Europa League

Arsenal will look into doing a deal for Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leaves Emirates Stadium this summer, claims John Barnes.

Aubameyang is club captain with the Gunners and an integral part of their plans, but he has entered the final 12 months of his current contract.

No fresh terms have been agreed as yet, with Arsenal left sweating on whether they will have to reluctantly sanction a move elsewhere.

If they are forced into that corner, then cover will be required in the final third of the field.

A move for Edouard has been mooted for some time, with the former Paris Saint-Germain striker having starred in Scotland.

Former Celtic boss Barnes believes Arsenal will test the water if Aubameyang departs, but says there are no guarantees that the highly-rated French forward will head out of Glasgow in the next window.

“DoCelticfans really believe thattheir best player isn’t available for the right price?No,theydon’t.Thisisafactoflife, and ofmodern football,” Barnes told BonusCodeBets.

“OdsonneEdouardisthe topstrikerinScotlandandif Aubameyangwas to leaveArsenal,thentheywillbe lookingatEdouard’s situation.

“However,ifAubameyangstays,thenIdon’tsee himcoming.

“I think if you look at any of the top players inScotland that they could come down to England and be a success.He’sdoing very wellat the momentand could make the step up to the Premier League if he gets a movethat’sright for him and works for how he plays.

“As a club, youmustbekeepingtabs onother players and potential replacements because you justdon’tknow whatisgoing to happen.Youmustalwaysbe ready for the possibility of a player leaving,so thatyou’renot caught with your pants down.

“Evenif a player is happy andeverythingisgoingwell at a club, the clubhasgotto be ahead of the gamein casethe worsthappens,andthey’vegot tofind a replacement.

“This is the case with Aubameyang, nothing is certain in football soit’simportant you prepare.”

Edouard has sought to distance himself from the speculation that continues to build around him, with the 22-year-old expecting to lead the line for Celtic again in 2020-21.
