Arsenal’s number one priority for the summer explained

Arsenal have placed Martin Odegaard‘s return as their number one priority this summer.

The Norwegian arrived in North London in January with the intention of picking up some valuable first-team minutes, having found himself wanting in the earlier months under Zinedine Zidane.

It didn’t take Martin long to break his way into the manager’s plans, and he swiftly became a fans favourite with some fine creative displays in the number 10 role, and it will be no surprise to hear that Arsenal are keen on his return.

The ball isn’t in our court however, with uncertainty at the Bernabeu likely to delay our pursuit, with Zidane having left his role in charge of the first-team, knowing that it wouldn’t be a shock to hear that the new coach would be keen to promote the 22 year-old into a fair squad role.

The Athletic goes as far as to say that a new manager could well eye Odegaard as an important first-team player, but he represents Arsenal’s number one target.

The same article also insists that we are looking to strengthen our goalkeeping role, all across the back-four and in central midfield.

Could Real Madrid’s next manager underestimate the talent of Martin Odegaard?

    Arsenal can never finish in top Four, win or compete for major trophies with Leno. Go get back out Emi Martinez for any cost, get Jack Grealish, Yves Bissouma, I bet you will compete and win trophies again. Stop deceiving yourselves because I know that coach Michel Arteta, Edu and The Kroenke knows exactly what to do for us to be back where we used to be.

    Speculation is fabulous… its all now down to a 25 man squad, Europe is the target for next year either, champions league or Europa league so, my new school 25 is as follows… * indicates a new signature!

    Leno
    Onana*
    Hakimi*
    Chambers
    Tierney
    Wijndal*
    Gabriel

    & the 3 I would keep are..
    Mavropanos
    Geendozi???????
    Lacazette

    As for the rest of the current squad sell..
    Runarsson
    Bellerin
    Cedric
    Xhaka
    Willian
    Torreira
    Maitland-Niles
    Nketiah

    What do you think? What positions would you agree with or who would you choose?

    I believe that all targets I have chosen are within our summer budget (with some wiggle room) so….????

    1. MrLucky says:

      Within our budget? What do you think our budget will be? 300 mil? Camavinga alone is valued at 100m..

    2. Joe Allysons says:

      keep elneny and sell xhaka? based on what?
      except for keeping bellerin, it’s a nice fantasy squad you have there.

      I’d get a striker . I think that’s the most urgent signing, I wouldn’t sell any of those we have however.

      Owen Winjdal would be a great addition at left back, but if we can get Bertrand, that would be great being as we might not have to pay for him.

      Yvess Bissouma would be next on the priority list. Then a goal keeper. I’d bring in Matt Ryan again.

      I think we should go all out for an attacker. If we can get Sterling for 45 maybe 50 million, that might just be our best investment this summer.

  4. Sean Williams says:

    He is a moderately good player but will not take us to top four. We need players to take us to top four and title challengers. Odegaard is just OK.

  5. Reggie says:

    Not the player Arsenal need, didn’t pull any trees up last season and strolled through games. NO THANKS!

  6. hans andersson says:

    Yeah, maybe, if Ödegård bring his pal Håland. That would be a start. Cash up, Yanks!

  7. Atangana says:

    Odegard???
    First sign Buendia, Dakah or Andre Silva and Bissouma. The back line is better than the midfield and attack

  8. Suy says:

    I would love to have Bundea instead of Odaguard. As we need goal scoring midfielder . Odaguard will slow down things and his numbers at Arsenal are not very encouraging.
    I also would love to have Sterling to play opposite to Pepe. Then if we can bring Bissoma. That should be good enough to challenge for top 4

  9. The-Real-Vieira-Lynn-4ever says:

    if Ode is our number 1 priority, we have our priorities all wrong

  10. Ari says:

    The manager is garbage, bin a large portion of the squad. Recruit Zidane or Conte in addition to grealish, bissouma, hakimi And tapsoba. Then we might challenge for top 4 and higher.
