ARSENAL legend Thierry Henry has revealed he is a huge fan of Gunners transfer target Odsonne Edouard.
The 22-year-old striker had scored 28 goals for Celtic this campaign before the season was suspended and then cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
He and his Hoops team-mates were 13 points clear of rivals Rangers, leading Celtic to be awarded the title by the SFA.
But the Scottish champions look like they will face a huge task to keep hold of the French star after his 62 goals in 126 appearances since joining from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017.
Arsenal are believed to be leading the chase for the hotshot as they eye replacements for Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang.
And Scotland and Rangers icon Ally McCoist has now let slip Arsenal’s all-time top scorer is a big fan.
He told talkSPORT: “I spoke to Thierry Henry at the Liverpool vs Leicester City game and he really rates Edouard.
“He was saying in France in particular [he is highly regarded] and he personally really, really thinks he’s got a chance of going right to the top.”
Henry is not the only ex-Premier League ace to predict big things for Edouard, with Chris Sutton telling the Daily Record the “sensational” striker could emulate Virgil van Dijk by leaving Celtic to flourish in England.
He said: “French striker Edouard is going to the very top just like Van Dijk and he’s been sensational.
“The striker can do everything. He links the game, he makes runs, he creates and he is a quality finisher.
“Edouard really assumed the mantle of responsibility as Neil Lennon chased the nine last season and delivered in emphatic style for his boss and team.”
