​Arsenal, Aston Villa challenging Leicester for Celtic striker Edouard

Leicester City are facing competition from two Premier League clubs for Odsonne Edouard from Celtic.

The French striker played under Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers when he was at Celtic.

Now the Foxes want to sign Edouard this summer.

But they will have to fend off interest from Premier League rivals Arsenal and Aston Villa, according to Leicestershire Live.

Arsenal could even sell Alexandre Lacazette or Eddie Nketiah to fund the move.

The Gunners are looking for a young and proven number nine, with captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang set to turn 32 this year.
