Odsonne Edouard’s personal phone call from Jurgen Klopp over Liverpool transfer

A proposed move to bring Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard to Liverpool is off, reports suggest.

In March it was reported that Liverpool were prepared to offer Divock Origi plus cash in a swap deal but the Belgian has also quashed the potential transfer by refusing a switch to Scotland.

Edouard, 23, has scored 21 goals in 39 appearances for Celtic this season, while Origi has not played a Premier League game since February.

The French under-21 international wasn't convinced Liverpool would be the right move for him because of the vast options Jurgen Klopp has with four satisfactory strikers already.

Anfield Central understands that Edouard had a personal phone call with Klopp about a potential move, but he didn't see where he would fit in.

That's understandable given Mohamed Salah's consistency of grabbing 20 goals a season.

Despite some injury spells, Portugal's Diogo Jota and Senegal striker Sadio Mane are also in double figures with a combined total of 31 goals.

Edouard is not short of other offers.

He has been linked with a move to Arsenal as a potential replacement for Alexandre Lacazette.

Leicester City were also reported to have put in an offer of £15million for the striker.

A flight back to France could be another route with AS Monaco and Lille showing their interest.
