Report: Celtic identify replacement if Edouard departs

CELTIC have reportedly identified Shon Weissman as a potential replacement for Odsonne Edouard, should the Frenchman depart this summer. The Israeli striker has scored 29 goals in 30 appearances for Austrian side Wolfsberger AC.

Neil Lennon has said that he is confident that Edouard will remain at the Scottish Champions as they push for 10-in-a-row; however, the Telegraph is reporting that Lennon wants a contingency plan in place if an offer comes in for Edouard and the club decide to sell.

Weismann has a year remaining on his contract in Austria after agreeing a two-year deal last summer. Although, any move would only be in the event that Odsonne Edouard were to leave Celtic.

Neil Lennon has insisted that he will do all that he can to ensure that the lethal frontman remains at Celtic next year with talks over a new deal expected to take place when Celtic resume training.

With 27 goals and 19 assists in 45 appearances, Edouard has rightfully caught the eye of a number of suitors – including Arsenal. However, Edouard has two years remaining on his current Celtic deal and despite the interest, Celtic may not achieve the value they attribute to the former-PSG man as a result of the economic impact caused by Coronavirus.
