Southampton have been making calls regarding the 23-year-old and are ready to pay the Hoops’ asking price of £20 million.

However, there is one problem, according to the report.

Former Paris Saint-Germain striker Edouard’s wage demands are ‘huge’, and Southampton want him to reduce them.

Could a transfer happen?

Southampton are a big and established club in the Premier League, and Edouard could go straight into the staring lineup.

After all, the Saints need a striker following the departure of Ings to Villa.

Perhaps Edouard should reduce his demands to make a move happen.

If the Frenchman does well for the Saints for two or so seasons, the he could get a move to an even bigger club in the Premier League.

Edouard scored 16 goals and gave three assists in the Scottish Premiership for Celtic last season.
