Arsenal, Man Utd target Edouard: I want to become world's best striker

Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard says he wants to become the best striker in the world.

Momentum is building for the Frenchman to move to the Premier League this summer, with Manchester United and Arsenal interested.

"I would like to become the best striker in the world," Edouard said upon receiving the Scottish Premiership's player of the month award. "One of the best strikers anyway. I don't know when that will happen. I live day to day and I enjoy my life. We will see in time."

Asked who he looks to for inspiration, a Brazilian great sits above any active players in the Frenchman's estimations.

He said: "There are a lot of strikers I like. I don't have one specific striker at the moment that I admire the most, but Ronaldo – the Brazilian one – is the best.

"In the present moment I watch a lot of different strikers and I try to learn from them. I'm still young so I'm training a lot and every year I become more mature as a player. I work hard on all aspects of my game all the time, so everything is improving."
