Odsonne Edouard is one of a few players who have been linked with a return to Celtic this summer. The Frenchman left the club in the summer of 2021 in order to join Crystal Palace. He has had his moments in the Premier League but overall, it has not been a successful stint for the striker and there is speculation regarding his future in London.

Edouard has had three underwhelming seasons at Crystal Palace. And many believe that it might be time to part ways.

Amid all this, Edouard has decided to do something that often points towards a possible transfer in the future. He has changed agents.

As reported by The Sun [print edition page 55] (via 67 Hail Hail), Edouard has changed agents. He is now with the football agency PLG.

Edouard was fantastic during his time at Celtic. He was a key part of the legendary Quadruple Treble side and managed to score more than 20 goals in three consecutive seasons for the Hoops.

With Celtic needing to sign a striker this summer, it should come as no surprise that Edouard has been linked with a potential return to the Glasgow club. Of course, pulling it off might not be so easy.

There have been some suggestions that Crystal Palace would look for a transfer fee north of £15 million, possibly even closer to £20 million, for Edouard. Do not expect Celtic to be in the conversation if that is indeed accurate.

The best-case scenario for Celtic this summer would be signing Adam Idah on a permanent basis, after his successful loan spell at Parkhead. But not having a buyout clause has emerged as a bigger issue than anybody could have anticipated and it is Norwich City who hold most of the cards right now.
