Former Hoops favourite Hartson, who also played for the Gunners, isn’t convinced he will be tempted to leave Neil Lennon’s men this summer as he reckons the lure of being a history maker could see Edouard remain in Scotland.

He said: “The manager and board want him to stay, but the club have been known to sell players when the right offer comes in.

“What would you price him at now? £40million?

“Moussa Dembele went for £20m and Chelsea were looking to pay £70m for him.

“Why would Celtic let Edouard go cheap? If you are going to sell him you need to get top dollar for him.

“He realises he could become one of the immortals as this is unprecedented what Celtic are looking to achieve this season.

“If they can get Edouard to stay it is a massive coup for the club.

“They will get bids and I mean serious bids, but ultimately it will all come down to Edouard.

“I don’t think it is about the money as he will earn serious money as he is a young boy and it will all come down to him.”
