Celtic will be looking forward to signing Wolfsberger AC player Shon Weissman if Odsonne Edouard decides to leave the Scottish club. If he decides to leave the club then it will be a piece of good news for Arsenal and Tottenham as they are looking forward to signing him.

In the current season before the suspension of football activity, he has scored 27 goals and assisted 19 ones with 46 appearances for Celtic.
As per the reports, Arsenal is one of the clubs that havea keen interest in the player. Tottenham is another club who has claimed to be watching him over the 2019–2020 season. With Celtic's decision to pursue Weissman, both the Premier League clubs will be glad to know Celtic is willing to sell him.
Edouard is a good player and everyone will be expecting Celtic to keep him with the club. But when looking at Weissman he is a good replacement he has scored 29 goals from 30 appearances and he has also scored against big clubs like Roma. It suggests that he can be a quite good replacement of Edouard and can be a contributor to the club.
