The Seagulls previously trailed Arsenal for his signature at odds of 6/1.
But Graham Potter's side now leading the chase at odds-on 10/11 to complete a transfer before the transfer window closes on September 3.
Brighton currently have Neal Maupay, Danny Welbeck and Aaron Connolly in attack, who combined to score 16 goals last season.
And reports suggest they are planning to use some of the £50million Ben White windfall to lure Edouard to the Amex Stadium.
The Daily Record claim Brighton have offered a guaranteed £18.5m for Edouard but the Hoops want upwards of £20m with an additional 15% sell-on clause.

Edouard has been outstanding for Celtic since his £9million arrival from Paris Saint-Germain.
The 23-year-old has bagged 83 goals and provided 37 assists in 169 appearances – winning three titles in the process.
But he's now entered the final 12 months of his contract, which expires in June 2022.
And Celtic chiefs expect to offload him this summer to avoid losing him on a free transfer next year.
Sky Bet had Arsenal as the leading contenders at 3/1 but they've now drifted out to 7/1.
Mikel Arteta is reportedly looking to replace Alexandre Lacazette at the Emirates and views Edouard as a great option.
Crystal Palace are a fraction ahead of their London neighbours at 6/1.
New manager Patrick Vieira is a big fan of the centre-forward and could hold the trump card with former PSG academy chief Said Aigoun now at Selhurst Park.
Leicester, who were reported to have agreed an £18million deal earlier this year, are offered at 12/1.
West Ham are the same price with Aston Villa further back at 14/1.
Tottenham and Southampton are locked together at 25s with Everton the outsiders of the chasing pack at 33/1.
