ARSENAL are favourites to sign Celtic forward Odsonne Edouard, according to bookmakers Sky Bet.
But there’s plenty of competition for the Frenchman with several Premier League clubs also tipped to launch an approach.
Edouard has been outstanding for Celtic since his £9million arrival from Paris Saint-Germain.
The 23-year-old has bagged 83 goals and provided 37 assists in 169 appearances – winning three titles in the process.
But he’s now entered the final 12 months of his contract, which expires in June 2022.
And Celtic chiefs expect to offload him this summer to avoid losing him on a free transfer next year.
Sky Bet have installed Arsenal as the leading contenders for his signature at a tentative 3/1.

Mikel Arteta is reportedly looking to replace Alexandre Lacazette at the Emirates and views Edouard as a great option.
Brighton are next in the betting market at 6/1.
The Seagulls currently have Neal Maupay, Danny Welbeck and Aaron Connolly in attack, who combined to score 16 goals last season.
But reports suggest they are planning to use some of the £50million Ben White windfall to lure Edouard to the Amex Stadium.
Crystal Palace are also available at 6/1.
New manager Patrick Vieira is a big fan of the centre-forward and could hold the trump card with former PSG academy chief Said Aigoun now at Selhurst Park.
Aston Villa and West Ham are locked together at 8/1 with Tottenham further back at 12s.
Leicester, who were reported to have agreed an £18million deal earlier this year, are offered at 16/1.
Southampton and Everton complete the betting market at 18/1 and 20/1 respectively.
