West Ham United fans have provided a mixed reaction to the rumours that Celtic value reported target Odsonne Edouard at £35 million.

The Daily Star claim that Edouard is expected to leave Parkhead this summer amid interest from a host of clubs, including West Ham and those in North London.

The price-tag being touted about is £35 million, but a section of West Ham fans aren’t keen on their club putting that sort of money on the table.

West Ham need a striker after selling Sebastien Haller, and a new face, alongside the driving Michail Antonio, would make David Moyes’ side even more dangerous.

Whilst those in East London are looking for the right player to come along this month, some West Ham fans are willing to wait to pounce for the technically-gifted Celtic man in the summer.

That’s when his contract will run down even further and there could be the chance they could sign him for less money.

But the other problem is that the likes of Arsenal are also sniffing around and if they come calling then the Hammers might lose out on the player.

So, it will be interesting to see how the Irons tackle this situation because they need to be clever to secure his signature for a very good price, as well as beating competition.

Nonetheless, here is a selection of West Ham fans reacting to the rumours about Edouard’s price-tag:

Here’s all the news from around the Emirates Stadium over the past 24 hours.

Thomas would welcome Eriksen

Former Arsenal striker Michael Thomas believes Christian Eriksen would be “an amazing addition” to his old club, amid transfer rumours.

Eriksen signed for Inter Milan from Tottenham Hotspur earlier this year, but has struggled to settle into life at the San Siro.

The Denmark international has now been linked with a move to the Gunners, and Thomas would be delighted if his ex-club could persuade him to come.

Speaking to CaughtOffside, he said: “I think his creativity would be an amazing addition to the current team. He knows the league and Arteta’s style would suit him. His stats speak for themselves.

“I think obviously Ozil’s time is up, and along with Emile Smith Rowe and Joe Willock in that central position, he (Eriksen) would be a good player to learn from.”

Winterburn makes Aubameyang claim

Former Arsenal defender Nigel Winterburn has claimed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would not have gotten into Arsene Wenger’s pre-2000s team.

Going into this season, Aubameyang was in red-hot form, but he has struggled in front of goal since signing a new contract with the Gunners.

Winterburn has now insisted that the Gabon striker would not quite make the cut in most of the Arsenal teams he played in.

Asked by Fantasy5 on whether Aubameyang would make the cut, he replied: “Who would I put him in for? Would I put him in instead of Ian Wright? Would I put him in instead of Thierry Henry? I don’t think many people would take that hit.

“I’d have him in the squad. I’d have Bukayo Saka in the squad, for sure. There’s probably a couple more.”

Partey returns to full training

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has returned to full training following the thigh injury he sustained at Tottenham earlier this month.

Partey was substituted shortly after returning from an initial thigh problem, which he hurt again in the north London derby.

However, some good news for Gunners supporters - with the Ghana star now back in full training.

The 27-year-old has been pictured taking part in training at London Colney prior to Arsenal’s away trip to Brighton this evening.
