GSB could form frightening West Ham attack by signing Odsonne Edouard

West Ham United are leading the race to sign talismanic striker Odsonne Edouard this summer…

What’s the word?

That’s according to Football Insider, who claim that Premier League rivals Leicester City are having second thoughts over making a bid for Brendan Rodgers’ former Celtic star.

It is thought that the emergence of Kelechi Iheanacho has made them reconsider their interest, bolstering the Hammers’ chances of securing him ahead of next season, having been said to be already laying the groundwork over a potential deal.

Would Edouard be a success at West Ham?

Yes, 100%

Yes, 100%

No chance!

No chance!

Edouard was valued at a whopping £40m last year but his price tag has plummeted, and with him out of contract in less than 15 months time, he could leave for as little as £10m.

Imagine him & Lingard

It’s no secret that the Irons need a new striker as they failed to bolster David Moyes’ armoury during the January transfer window, though they did manage to add Jesse Lingard on loan from Manchester United, and he’s been an instant hit.

In just ten league appearances, the England international has delivered nine goals and four assists, spearheading West Ham into European contention and it’s believed they will do whatever they can to secure him permanently this summer, as per Sky Sports.

Well, if they do, GSB will need to add another forward to compliment his attacking exploits and they should look no further than Edouard.

The Irons sold Sebastien Haller whilst Michail Antonio’s latest injury is another reminder that you will not get 30 or more matches out of the 31-year-old dynamo each season.

Edouard’s goalscoring record speaks for itself, with his 20 goals in all competitions this term taking his overall tally in Scotland to 81 goals in 163 appearances, via Transfermarkt.

Neil Lennon hailed the Frenchman as “talismanic” and “outstanding” last term, and Bhoys and Hammers legend Frank McAvennie believes he’s a “wonderful talent.”

Who scored West Ham United's last goal in Europe?

Interestingly, the east Londoners have been mooted as a potential destination for Chelsea outcast Tammy Abraham but ex-Villa man Gabby Agbonlahor believes the Celtic machine is a better player.

“I rate him higher than Abraham, Werner and [Olivier] Giroud,” Agbonlahor said to talkSPORT earlier this month. “I rate him highly.”

Just imagine the damage Moyes’ side could do next season – potentially in Europe – if David Gold, David Sullivan and Karen Brady manage to prise Edouard away from Celtic Park this summer.

The £13.5m-rated beast and Lingard would be a frightening attacking duo that is fit for any top seven side in the Premier League, so West Ham must get a deal for this “big talent” finalised.

AND in other news, Moyes could sign West Ham’s next Defoe in £26m-rated “goal machine” who’s “dangerous”
