Arsenal and Liverpool are reportedly ready to battle it out for the signature of Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard, who is out of contract in 2022.

Liverpool are reportedly ready to rival Arsenal for the signature of Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard.

The 23-year-old boasts a remarkable tally of 20 goals and five assists in 34 games for John Kennedy's side this term, but his prolific strike rate has not been enough to stop Rangers from storming to the Scottish Premiership title.

With the striker's contract due to expire at the end of next season, there is a growing feeling that he will end up leaving the club this summer in order to avoid the possibility of Celtic losing him for nothing in 2022.

Arsenal continue to be heavily linked with a move amid uncertainty surrounding three of their strikers in Eddie Nketiah, Folarin Balogun and Alexandre Lacazette, but according to the Transfer Window Podcast, Liverpool are also keen.

Jurgen Klopp could supposedly be in the market for more attacking reinforcements this summer, with Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri two players who are understood to be on the transfer list for the upcoming window.

Edouard provided the assist for Mohamed Elyounoussi's opener in Sunday's 1-1 draw with Rangers, and he has amassed 81 goals in 162 appearances for the club since arriving in 2017.

Sunday's key events

· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
