Chris Sutton rates Arsenal transfer target after Thierry Henry backing

Chris Sutton has hailed ‘sensational’ Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard and said the Arsenal transfer target can emulate Virgil van Dijk by cracking the Premier League.

French star Edouard has scored 62 goals in 126 matches for Celtic since signing from PSG in 2017, establishing himself as one of the top players in Scotland.

The 22-year-old had scored 28 goals this season before the coronavirus pandemic forced the Scottish top-flight to be suspended and eventually cancelled, with Celtic – 13 points clear of rivals Rangers – awarded the title.

Premier League club Arsenal have expressed interest in signing Edouard and Celtic legend Sutton says he can ‘do everything’ and even emulate Van Dijk.

Liverpool defender Van Dijk left Celtic in 2015 and is now considered one of the best players in world football.

‘French striker Edouard is going to the very top just like Van Dijk and he’s been sensational,’ Sutton told the Daily Record.

‘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.’

Thierry Henry, Arsenal’s all-time record goalscorer, is also a huge fan of Edouard, according to former Rangers striker Ally McCoist.

‘I spoke to Thierry Henry at the Liverpool vs Leicester City game and he really rates Edouard,’ McCoist told talkSPORT earlier this month.

‘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.’
