Kevin Campbell claims that Arsenal ‘love’ Martin Odegaard and tips us to make another attempt to sign him from Real Madrid this summer.
The midfielder came to North London in January on a short-term loan deal, and quickly became a regular in the first-team, exciting fans in only a short time with the club.
Mikel Arteta reiterated his desire to retain the Norway international during the duration of his loan, and has made no secret of his intention to bring him back to the club given the chance, but Real Madrid are expected to and keep him in the Spanish capital this term.
Recent reports seem to claim that he is keen to return to North London however, with Odegaard not convinced that he will pick up as many minutes as he craves, and former Gunner Campbell is refusing to rule out Arsenal coming back in with another attempt to lure him back to the Emirates.
“I could see this happening if it’s what they want,” he told the Football Insider.
“He’ll have gone back and he’ll have been thinking he’s going to get that opportunity he was looking for at Real Madrid.
“But with pre-season the way it is now, you get an inkling that you aren’t going to get as many chances as you’d like.
“Let’s be honest, Arsenal really, really like him, they love him. So why can’t they go back in for him?”
Could Arsenal lure the midfielder back for another spell with the club?
