Arsenal gets a boost in their bid to keep Odegaard at the Emirates

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their bid to keep Martin Odegaard beyond this season.

The Norwegian has been a revelation since he moved to the Emirates in the last transfer window.

He had struggled for game time at Real Madrid, but the Spanish side still believes that he is a big part of their future.

Arsenal has enjoyed his presence in their midfield and they would want to keep him at the Emirates beyond this campaign.

However, reports claim that Madrid will not even consider selling him to them no matter what happens.

His form has also raised the possibility of him being kept by the Spanish side and given greater responsibilities next season.

Football Insider’s latest update on his future is positive for the Gunners as they claim Arsenal can have him for another campaign if Zinedine Zidane remains the manager of Los Merengues.

The Frenchman isn’t a fan of the midfielder and the report says he would happily sanction his permanent or temporary transfer.

Zidane is under pressure at the Bernabeu and his departure will change the outlook of things on the midfielder’s future because he is a player that Florentino Perez wants to see shine for the club.

  1. This is not in any way news or new to us. All fans who are interested already knew thatZidane did not fancy him and would happily see him leave. More pertinent to ask whether Zidan will still be there next season , which I much doubt.

    I’d love Odegaard to come here permanently and so I suggest would most Gooners. To tell us what we have already known for weeks is not worth an article claiming to have something new to say! It is not new!

  2. So, a couple of good games for Arsenal and Odegaard is a “Wonder kid”. When I watched him play for Norway against Turkey today, he looked rather ordinary. I assume there is a reason why Zidane does not rate him (this is the same Zidane who doesn’t rate Gareth Bale, so he must know something about players ability). Again, I would wait until the end of the season before I made my mind up about this Norwegian.
    As an aside, did anybody notice the pallor of Auba’s face during the game against West Ham. He did not look well to me!

    1. JW, I have long thought that Auba does not look happy and believe he is not. I really think he regrets signing that contract already and that in essence he lacks character and is immature for a man of his age and background. I would not be sorry to see him leave, which I believe he will do, at latest by summer 2022. Or quite possibly sooner, even this summer.
      I learned decades ago that no player is ever indispensable nor irreplaceable, esp when not happy in his job.

  3. Real Madrid, with or without Zidane in charge need money for transfers. Should Odegaard continue to impress at Arsenal and wants the move, the Club should try to buy, because they know what they are getting. With other players, you don’t know how they will acclimatise and gell with the Club and their team mates.
