ASTON VILLA are reportedly plotting a summer swoop for Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard.

The Villans are looking to bolster their attacking options after surviving a relegation scrap last term and Dean Smith has pinpointed Edouard as a top target.

The Scottish Sun say Villa are weighing-up a £30million move for the Frenchman ahead of the start of the Premier League season.

Arsenal, Crystal Palace and Leicester City have also been credited with an interest in Edouard this summer.

He landed the top goal scorer award in Scotland last term, scoring 28 times before the season was curtailed early.
