Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard has reportedly turned down the chance to move to Liverpool following a phone call with Jurgen Klopp.

There were reports in March that Edouard was a Liverpool transfer target and that the Reds were willing to offer Divock Origi plus cash to land the 23-year-old.

However, Anfield Central claim Edouard is no longer a target for the Reds for a couple of reasons.


Firstly, it is claimed Origi wasn’t open to the move to Scotland but secondly that the France Under-21 international did not believe he would get enough game time at Anfield following a phone call with Klopp.

Liverpool already have four forwards who are established Premier League operators in Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota.
