Edouard is a very good forward who is technically brilliant and is a proven goalscorer, but there are question marks over his consistency.

While the forward does turn up in big games, such as the Old Firm derbies against Rangers, he does tend to go missing at times in other matches, and that is an area that the former Paris Saint-Germain youngster should improve in.

According to WhoScored, Edouard has scored two goals in two Scottish Premiership games, two goals in five Champions League qualifiers and one in one Europa League qualifier this season.
