Brendan Rodgers could look to his former club Celtic for Jamie Vardy’s longtime successor at Leicester by making a move for Osdonne Edouard.
The 23-year-old striker is one of the hottest talents in Scottish football – and Foxes manager Rodgers knows all about his ability to have coached him during his time as Hoops boss.
With 18 months left on his contract, Celtic could look to profit from the Frenchman unless he can agree on a new deal.
And Vardy’s recent injury is a timely reminder for Leicester that they can’t always count on the 34-year-old.
TalkSPORT transfer guru Alex Crook told White and Jordan on Friday: “One name that comes up constantly in conversations with people close to Leicester is Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard.
“He is in the last 18 months of his contract, hesitant to sign a new deal and could be available for £ 20million.
“Sounds like smart business to me, and they need support and even a long-term successor to Jamie Vardy, so watch this one by the end of the window.”
Another name linked to Leicester is former Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen, who has struggled to make an impact at Inter Milan since joining in January 2020.
Leicester inquired about acquiring the Danish international on loan – but withdrew from the deal after refusing to pay his huge salaries for the remainder of the season.
However, it shows Leicester are on the hunt for new signings contrary to what Rodgers has said.
“Rodgers played down Leicester’s chances of signing players in this window, but I think it shows that they are actively browsing the market,” Crook added.
