Odsonne Edouard

Would be very excited to get him in. Faster and more direct than Nacho and his finishing is on the same level.

We deffo need an extra striker, he’s big powerful and schools all types of goals, variety in a frontline isn’t bad. We need 4 strikers going into 4 competitions, with hirst as back up for an injury crisis!

I think Rodgers would definitely want him as he's worked so closely with him and developed a large part of his career.  My own opinion on him is that he is absolutely different class.  Moussa Dembele was a star for us, unreal, there was no doubt in anyone's mind that he was the best we had in the striking department since Larsson but the second-half of last season Edouard eclipsed anything even Dembele done for us, he was breathtaking. He's going to leave Celtic, he's too good for us, as much as it pains me to say it and too good for Scottish football. The word as I mentioned previously however is he's signed a new deal on mega money (by our standards) to stay for one more season and deliver the 10 then will go with everyone's best wishes.  What will happen this summer though ultimately I guess no one knows.

 

When Dembele left he made a wise choice in moving to Lyon, somewhere he would play and score goals and will now move to one of Europe's top clubs where he'll probably start every week.  Edouard in my opinion the way he's come on in the last season doesn't need that stepping stone move though and could go and hold his own at a top club already.  I'm not saying starting every game week in week out but in the squad alongside an experienced striker he could make a real contribution over a season and in not too long become the main man.  We got burnt a bit selling Dembele on the cheap and I don't think we'll do the same with Eddy, £30-35m will be our asking price and if there's a number of clubs after him we may get a little bit more.

 

In my mind he's undoubtedly now the best we've had since Larsson.  He is such a cool finisher, never seems to miss a 1 on 1, electric pace, strong, deadly from free kicks, good with his back to goal, always delivers in the big games. Ibrox, cup finals, Europe.  Pretty mcuh useless in the air is the only weakness I can see in his game and the frightening thing is he'll only get better.  His temparement also is so laid back that nothing fazes him and I think this would really help him when he moves to a top league.

 

There's people on here who watch Iheanacho most weeks and will be in a better position than me to judge. However I watched a lot of Leicester last season myself, practically every tv game and as good as Iheanacho was as an impact sub the games I saw him, relying on him regularly starting matches and delivering, I don't know if he's what you guys need if you want to be a perennial champions league club.  Again purely based on what I've saw Edouard is in a different class to him.

 

I don't mean this in any sort of disrespectful way but if you guys do sign him and he develops how I think he will he won't be at Leicester for too long either.  

 

This post is good enough for me.

 

@henrik_62 seems a good judge and doesn't seem to let bias cloud that. BR has also worked with him so knows what he's buying.

 

If you can get a player in who you believe is top quality even if other players are standing in their way then it's usually good business to do that and sort things out after they've signed. We might be able to move Iheanacho on for £20m and bring Edouard in for £30m which probably equals good business. 

 

Plenty of games next season to keep most of the squad happy and Vardy isn't getting any younger and may need to be managed before handing over his crown to the new kid. Also BR might want to play 3-5-2 more often if he thinks it suits the personnel we have at the club. Get him in.

Schmeichel

 

Justin

Evans

Soyuncu

 

Ricardo

Tielemans

Ndidi

Maddison

Chilwell

 

Edouard

Vardy

 

Might be useful? Especially if we cannot find a RW... I always find both vardy and Iheanacho play better in a two and are less isolated.

He looks like a complete striker. Type of relative unknown that would shock the Premier League at first as well I reckon. 
 

Does anyone know if Nixon actually knows anything? Seems to be responding to any fan that asks.

I would take a frontline of Vardy, Edouard, Iheanacho and Perez tbf. WIth the extra games and the possibility of two up top, they will all be needed. 

If Edouard signs for us, Iheanacho will want out.

There’s no way he’ll want to stay, given most games we only play one up front.

Would give us another option up front, at 6'1/6'2 he'd give us more aerial threat for sure. Would potentially be a great partner for all our attackers

We have to decide who stays and who goes this window. If Rodgers thinks Iheanacho isn't going to be the guy then he has to be sold and bring Edouard etc. in to acclimatise to the Premier League. If Vardy goes down like he did mid winter then we are screwed again. That's why getting another attacker on the right is so important.

Don't need another midfielder. we need speed, creativity, and the ability to score goals from anywhere in the box. A bit of magic. So sick of watching us go backwards in the final third. Luke Thomas was a breath of fresh air.

Not fair he's scored a couple headers and odd finishes. His aerial hold up might not be great but otherwise his hold up and linking up is great.

Edouard is similar, despite his height he's not much of an aerial threat. I would say nacho is actually better at heading than he is.

Agree with most of that @SO1but we do need another CM quite desperately. We can’t rely on Maddison & Tielemans both staying fit & in form for 50+ games. We need another AM for competition & rotation.

I mentioned it before in another thread, I think having the Scots Prem top scorer and The Premier Leagues top scorer up front has a nice ring to it

The one who has 5 goals 3 assists in 900 minutes? Strikers need a run of games to get into shape and nacho isnt an exception, him getting that return in such limited playing time this season is very impressive.

You confused me with the term very good, showing promise would be a better term.
