Martin Odegaard is the new Arsenal fans’ favourite and they want their team to keep the Norwegian beyond his current loan spell.
He is at the Emirates for the rest of the season from Real Madrid and there is no agreement to extend his stay.
However, his fine performances for the Gunners have helped them to remain competitive in the Premier League and the Europa League.
The Gunners reportedly want to sign him permanently, or at least on loan for another campaign.
Real Madrid has watched him become better at the Emirates and they might look to give him a prominent role in their side next season.
With that in mind, the Gunners will need a charm offensive to convince him to choose another spell in London over a Madrid stay.
The fans have already taken to him and want him to stay and now, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has vowed to help to convince him too.
The Gabon striker was streaming FIFA21 on his Twitch channel over the weekend and one fan asked him if he would try to get Odegaard to stay at Arsenal.
He responded via Star Sports: “Definitely I will ask him.”
Thanks for your support in retaining Martin Odegaarde, Pierre; however the best thing that you can do for Arsenal is concentrating on your own game, getting back your mojo and scoring goals again.
Odegaard was hailed as the new Messi yet Madrid the richest club in the world paid a measly 2mill for this footballing genius.
In 5 years Odegaard has played just 7 La Liga games for RM.
In fact he has been sent out on loan every season because he is not good enough.
Now Madrid are trying to dump Johann Cruyff the 2nd off to some sucker club for 30mill.
Arsenal are not that dumb are we?
We don’t pay over the top transfer fees and high wages to players we can’t get rid of.
No no and no not us never.
Remember Odegaard is playing for a contract. What is he like when he gets a huge 5 year guaranteed contract?
Like many of the others goes into you can’t sack me ha ha cruise mode.
He looks decent because we only have ESR to compare him too.
15 -20 games is not enough time to assess. Loan him another season and send that other over rated RM reject Ceballos back.
Use the other loan allocation to trial an experienced left back to support Tierney.
Bottom line is Odo had 5 years to convince Madrid and has failed to do so and is now being hawked around looking for a sale.
It’s a buyer’s market so offer ‘drid 4mill and our own Ronaldo the one and only Reiss Nelson.
Take it or leave it.
Real Madrid are broke and only big names and big tag player are wanted
they are saving up to pay big money for Pogba and Mbappe
I can only offer up that some are late developers or flourish under a different regime. Vardy for example and closer to home , Martinez.
SueP, and Harry Kane wasn’t considered good enough to make it at Arsenal. Liam “Chippy” Brady, the head of the Academy at the time, still has nightmares about that decision.
Wyoming is of the opinion that Martin Odegaard hasn’t made the starting eleven at Real Madrid by the age of 22 and is therefore a failure as a professional footballer. The supporters of Real Sociedad and others disagree.
Your comments are completely valid, although the last time I saw an Arsenal midfielder single handedly drag his team mates back into a game, as Odegaard did against West Ham United, I was watching Cesc Fabrigas.
No wonder this “over rated” player is captain of Norway. After all he only cost Real Madrid €4 million plus add ons as a 16 year old, when Arsenal scouts obviously were asleep or thought he was only worth £10,000.
With teams like Man City and Bayern Munich lining up bids Im certain they will pass.
Odegaard, can’t play the type of soccer in Spain, as the one he plays in the EPL. Two different brands. So, he must stay at arsenal to further his career and he’s playing under a very good coach.
Auba could best help by selling a dozen or two of his top range sports cars and donating the money to us to give to RM.
As Harry Hill would say “WHAT ARE THE CHANCES OF THAT HAPPENING”!!
