Manchester United are looking to once again reach the summit of English football and adding a striker like Odsonne Edouard would be a major help.
That is the view of former Celtic frontman Chris Sutton who played in an all-conquering side featuring the legendary Henrik Larsson.
Edouard is currently banging in the goals for the Scottish champions and has been hailed as the club's best striker since the prolific Swede.
The Frenchman has scored 47 times since the start of last season and looks set for bigger things.
United have relied heavily on Marcus Rashford this term with the jury still out on Anthony Martial, but top clubs nowadays have a host of attacking weapons.
Edouard would command a hefty fee and Sutton admits the 22-year-old is at a level where he could seek pastures new.
He said: "Edouard is worth £40 million. He’s the best striker that Celtic have had since Henrik and is going to the very top.
“Assessing some of the transfer fees which are being banded about for average players, the rate of inflation and the premium which is added to the cost for top-class strikers, I genuinely believe £40 million is a realistic sales figure.
“I’d be staggered if there aren’t big clubs around Europe fighting over his signature in the summer.
“In all honesty, the time will probably right for him to go in the summer. He looks to me as though as he is already ready for the step up to one of Europe’s big leagues.
“Edouard might have decided his time is up, but maybe he hasn’t. Only he knows."
United made a late move for Odion Ighalo on deadline day last month to ensure they were sufficiently stocked in attack, at least until the end of the season, but are yet to permanently replace Romelu Lukaku who left for Inter Milan in the summer.
