Arsenal winning midfielder race despite interest from La Liga side

Arsenal is closing in on a move for Real Madrid midfielder, Martin Odegaard as he struggles to understand being left out at the Spanish side.

He had a fantastic season in the last campaign while he was on loan at Real Sociedad. Odegaard was supposed to spend two seasons there, but it was cut short due to his fine performances.

He started Madrid’s first two games of the season, but he hasn’t been picked consistently since then.

Sport says that the Norwegian has become fed up with not playing and wants to leave the club this month.

The report says that after being left out of the Madrid team that were beaten by lowly Alcoyano in the Spanish Cup yesterday, he is now looking to leave and join Arsenal.

This report comes after Guillem Balague told the BBC that Real Sociedad is also looking to take him back, and the midfielder would apparently love to return there.

He said that adaptation would be faster for him there since he already had a stint with them.

The Sports report says that he would find some comfort at Arsenal in the form of his fellow loanee, Dani Ceballos.

        @Sue, she’s way better than some players linked with Arsenal.

  2. S.J says:

    Arteta should make sure he gets him. Smith-Rowe can not carry the team on his own.
    Having Odegaard will make the competition more fierce. The boy is a skilful player that will be valuable to us.

  3. Sven Svenson says:

    Only if it’s a permanent deal or at least a loan with an option to buy,never been a fan of loan players who just see Arsenal as a stepping stone.

    1. Trudeau says:

      Agree, only with an option to buy. The fact that he’s left-footed is intriguing as he could also cover for Xhaka as well if he can play a little deeper.

      But overall not a fan of loans for young players. Don’t see the point in developing them for their parent club. Rather bring up another u23/21 player to cover for ESR.

    Send Cellabos back and buy this kid

      Only if Ceballos goes, should we consider him!! Because if he doesn’t do well, we would now have two Real Madrid flops!!
      Then it will be like a foolish person making a mistake twice!!πŸ˜•πŸ˜•

      1. Loose Cannon says:

        That makes it three considering the 350k per week flop. RM chiefs must be laughing for the past 7.5 years.

    Aterta should make a fast step to make sure that the Player sign for arsenal

  6. RFrancis says:

    Adapting Dani Ceballos into an attacking midfielder makes more sense to me. Why take another risky gamble on another midfielder especially one from another league – for just five months?

    1. RSH says:

      it’s not a risky gamble tho because it’s just a 5 month loan.

  7. Declan says:

    Ceballos goes round in circles so much using one foot, he makes me dizzy just watching him.

  8. Paul says:

    It will be a great buy for arsenal it will help bring more creativity in the midfield

  9. The Real Vieira Lynn says:

    Loans simply aren’t the way to go for this club…best case scenario, they perform incredibly well then leave us with more questions than answers…unless it comes with an option to buy, go another way, like promoting Azeez for the purposes of providing some cover
