The 23-year-old Frenchman has been the subject of plenty of speculation this summer, with a move to the Premier League mooted and the likes of Crystal Palace credited with interest.
Sky's resident rumour-monger, Kaveh Solhekol, tweeted today that tje Blues have "sounded" Celtic out over a possible deal.
Earlier in the day, Solhekol claimed that Rubin Kazan have offered €18m for Edouard while Bordeaux are also willing to pay the same amount.

Don't see why people are concluding Richarlison will be sold. Edouard will cost £9-10M with 12 months left on his contract. Kean will fetch around £30M from Juventus which can be doubled into £60M for FFP purposes.

I honestly don't fear Richarlison going at all this window unless a huge bid comes in.

Edouard was good two years ago but seems to have downed tools since.

Offer them £10m plus Kenny and Delph, who would do well up there.

I don't know much about this guy (Edouard), but many on TW seem to rate him, so that will do for me. Edouard, Patterson and Diaz would be a brilliant end to the transfer window, and I would feel genuine optimism for this season.
Hopefully that goes with getting rid of Tosun and Delph and decent transfer fees for James and Kean and Kenny.
Everton's potential squad for the season:
GK: Pickford, Begovic, Lonergan
RB: Coleman, Patterson (or Maitland-Niles)
LB: Digne, Nkounkou
CB: Mina, Keane, Godfrey, Holgate, Branthwaite
MF: Doucoure, Allan, Davies, Gomes, Gbamin
Forwards: Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Iwobi, Gray, Townsend, Diaz, Edouard
Not a world beating squad, but decent enough to give Rafa the tools to work with this season and be competitive with the likes of Aston Villa, Leicester, West Ham, Spurs, Arsenal, etc.

I can't keep up with the transfer rumours... jeez, it's going to be very interesting come deadline day, that's for sure.
Feeling positive though, we could have finally a half-decent Blues team emerging!

Edouard definitely has the potential to be a really good player, and at times his pace, positioning and finishing make him absolutely unplayable. Unfortunately, he does have a degree of 'can't be arsed' in him occasionally, and there are times when he doesn't show up (not literally). He's young, and with some good coaching could end up being the real deal. I'd be keen if he is seriously being considered.

As a Celtic man, as much as it pains me to say it, he needs to move.

We had just signed Scott Gemill, and Kevin Campbell, on loan from Forest, and I asked Walter why hed just gone and signed them? “For fucks sake son, we had to go and do fuckin something” had me shaking my head, but Campbells goals did keep us in the EPL!

By having 3/4 forwards it gives the option of rotation and cover with a different style of play. Rather than having a back up for DCL.
What we have in DCL is a player with unbelievable anticipation and heading ability within the 18 yard box. It is absolutely lethal.
Although generally his finishing, particularly in one on one situations can lack quality. If you can put the ball into an area with quality, for him to attack, he is phenomenal and potentially the best in the world.

Read my post more carefully. I think we would be better supporting his place with another forward allowing rotational cover.
A direct cover central striker is not going to play. Unless DCL is unavailable and generally, touch wood, hes quite durable.
So when we do need cover in the forward position we can play a forward line of Richarlison, Gray, Kean (if hes still here) and the other forward that I suggest we bring in. Richarlison I also believe can play the central role well, its what he does for Brazil and certainly what hell be doing if he goes to PSG.
Personally Id rather we spent £30m on someone like Damsgaard than Edouard.

I know it's not something everyone would agree with, but the two Glasgow teams are absolutely massive football clubs, and not many clubs in world football have bigger fan-bases, but it's a touchy subject which isn't going to happen anyway, Michael.👍
