Odegaard’s new contract will give Arteta the full house of his long-term Arsenal spine

Arsenal feeling confident about Odegaard’s new contract

Rumour has it that Arsenal, Martin Odegaard and his agents are on track to agreeing terms of a new contract at Arsenal. Odegaard who was named earlier this season as Arsenal new captain, is clearly an important player in Arteta’s side and hopefully we get to see him in red and white for many years to come.

Fabrizio Romano confirming yesterday via Twitter, that talks were positive between Arsenal and Odegaard’s camp over a contract extension. Saying its only a matter of time and that Odegaard has always wanted to stay at Arsenal.

Odegaard was asked about his contract situation over the international break and said this “I don’t have much to say, apart from the fact that I am very happy at Arsenal and I hope I can be there for a long time”, he then went on to say “Beyond that, I have no comment right now. Now, it is the national team that is in focus” Via SkySports

Arteta was also asked about Odegaard’s contract situation in his press conference for the game against Everton at Goodison Park and said this “He’s our captain. He’s a massive player for us, a really important player for us now and for the future. We’re extremely happy to have him and want to keep him here for a long time. I’m always optimistic and we have a really good relationship with him and his agent. We are really close to them and, whenever that’s confirmed, we’ll announce it.”

Arsenal fans will be delighted to hear that we could be seeing our captain at the club for many years to come. After only joining the club in 2021, Odegaard has quick become a fan’s favourite, putting in 100% effort whenever he steps onto the pitch. After a somewhat rocky start to his career, Odegaard seems to have slotted in perfectly for Arteta and Arsenal, quickly becoming one of the squad’s most important players.

Having recently signed all of his other young stars to new longterm contracts this year, like Saliba, Saka, Martinelli, Nketiah and Nelson, and the recent signings of Rice, Timber and Odegaard and Kiwior, Arteta can be assured that the spine of the Arsenal team will be intact for many seasons to come.

What’s your thoughts Gooners? Are you happy that Odegaard could be in red and white for a long time?

  1. YES , I AM THRILLED! Surely all “thinking” fans want ALL our top class players to stay as long as possible, esp when still young with many years in front of them .

    Equally, all “thinking” fans want ALL lesser players , meaning those who are patently not up, nor even anywhere near, to the level of all the others, to LEAVE ASAP.

    1. 😇Jon, as a “thinking” fan myself, I have to ask the question, who are the “lesser” players you refer too and who signed, or re-signed them?

      As for Odegaard signing a new contract, I’m also very happy as Gunsmoke (below ⬇️) says it’s part of phase four!!

      At least I know now that was what phase four was meant to be – I assume phase five will see us winning something and /or staying in the CL?

  2. I’m very happy, because his high-pressing effort, vision and left-foot are priceless

    It’s difficult to find a highly-technical AM with Odegaard’s work ethic and left-foot, because many of them are usually reluctant to do high-press and tend to hide from 50/50 challenges

    If we don’t extend his contract this year, I’m afraid Man City, Barcelona or another top club will try to sign him in next summer
