Celtic would be lucky to get £15million for Odsonne Edouard this summer.
That is according to Parkhead legend Frank McAvennie, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the prospect of the 23-year-old leaving the club this summer.
According to Daily Mail, Leicester believe they have won the race to sign Edouard this summer for a fee in the region of £15million.
However, as quoted by the Daily Record, Celtic’s interim boss John Kennedy said £15million was “far too cheap”.
Edouard, who is out of contract in the summer of 2022, has contributed 20 goals and four assists in 33 appearances this season.
When asked for his valuation of the French striker, McAvennie told Football Insider:
“I think Edouard is worth decent money but has he proved it in the last couple of months? No. Would you be getting value for money at more than £15million right now? No.
“He is a wonderful talent but he has just not done it consistently enough.
“People can say he’s worth this and he’s worth that but a player is only worth what somebody is willing to pay for them.
“The club can say they want £20-25million for him but they will not get it and if they are not going to get it, then he is not worth that. “
Speaking on Edouard’s potential £15million exit earlier this month, Kennedy said: “That’s far too cheap for my liking.
“There comes a situation in terms of the remainder of a player’s contract and his motivation plus doing the right thing for the club regarding selling players on at the right time.”
