With 18 months left on his contract, Celtic may look to cash in on the Frenchman unless they can agree a new deal.
And Vardy’s recent injury is a timely reminder for Leicester that they can’t count on the 34-year-old forever.
talkSPORT transfer guru Alex Crook told White and Jordan on Friday: “One name that keeps coming up in conversations with people close to Leicester is Odsonne Edouard at Celtic.
“He’s in the last 18 months of his contract, is reluctant to sign a new deal and could be available for £20m.
“That looks a shrewd bit of business for me, and they do need back-up and even a long-term successor to Jamie Vardy, so watch that one between now and the end of the window.”

Another name linked with Leicester is former Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen, who has struggled to make an impact at Inter Milan since joining in January 2020.
Leicester enquired about acquiring the Denmark international on loan – but pulled out of the deal after refusing to pay his huge wages for the rest of the season.
However, it shows high-flying Leicester are in the hunt for new recruits, contrary to what Rodgers has been saying.
“Rodgers has played down Leicester’s chances of signing any players this window, but I think what this does show is that they are actively scouring the market,” Crook added.
