Celtic could be without striker Odsonne Edouard for their European qualifiers next season after the striker targeted playing for France in the Olympics.

Edouard has enjoyed a stunning start to his under-21s career having scored four goals in two games against Albania and Czech Republic respectively.

He's also on fire for Celtic having bagged six goals in 11 games for the club this season already.

Now he's desperate to force his way into the Olympic squad in Japan - even if it means jeopardising his spot at Celts for big European games early next term.

The Scottish Sun report the Frenchman as saying: "For me this is a great source of satisfaction and pride. It is always important to score goals as an attacker.

"My aim, I’ve already had this discussion with the coach, is to play in as many matches as possible.

"And to have a place as a starter and a leader in the squad.

"I am thinking about [the Olympics], however we are still far away from that. We have a season to complete.

"For the moment I am going to enjoy each match with the French national team to try to show my abilities."
