Arsenal transfer target Odsonne Edouard is set for crucial contract talks with Celtic as he looks to decide his future.
The Gunners are understood to be keen on French striker Edouard, who has impressed at Parkhead since joining three years ago.
The 22-year-old only has two years left on his deal, and has been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks.
To make matters more worrying, Celtic crashed out of the Champions League in the qualifying rounds.
Edouard, who is the club’s record signing at £9m from PSG, is now set for showdown talks with Celtic bosses about his future.

And his agent Lasana Koita admitted that it was important for Edouard to be playing in the best competitions possible, though Koita was keen to stress that his client was happy in Glasgow and focussed on helping Celtic go for the 10-in-a-row.
He told Record Sport: “Odsonne is happy at Celtic and enjoys life in Scotland.
“He is disappointed with the result on Wednesday especially as he was injured and could not play. I think the goal was certainly to qualify for the Champions League. That is football.

“I will speak with him. It is not crucial for Odsonne to be playing in the Champions League but it is important.
“We are going to wait because there is still a target for Celtic. There’s the Europa League and to go for 10 titles.
“Ten titles is important for Odsonne.
“We don’t know what will happen. For now he is with Celtic. We don’t discuss with any other team for now.”
