Real Madrid wants Arsenal target and that might see Odegaard return

Real Madrid has become interested in Houssem Aouar and that could help the Gunners sign Martin Odegaard.

Todofichajes says Los Blancos are looking to add some new players to their squad in this transfer window and one of them is Aouar.

The Frenchman has been a long-term target for the Gunners and they even made an offer for him last season.

They remain in the hunt for him now, however, he isn’t their priority target, that honour belongs to Odegaard.

The Norwegian spent the second half of last season at the Emirates and he was one of the stars in Mikel Arteta’s squad.

Todofichajes now states that Madrid is preparing to cash in on him, but they know they would need to replace him.

The Spanish giants have identified Aouar as the ideal replacement for him.

The Frenchman would cost less than Odegaard, but Arteta enjoyed working with the Norwegian and would prefer to add him to his squad if the chance becomes available.

Arsenal will need to have enough cash to sign him because the report says Madrid expects to make around 50m euros from his sale in this transfer window.

Another Arsenal target they will look to sign is Eduardo Camavinga, but their move for him will depend on the sale of Odegaard as well.

      And Spurs win it without Kane. Our uselessness is epic!

          2. SueP says:

            And yet it went stale at Wolves!
            And he wasn’t exactly first choice at TH.
            😔

          3. Kev82 says:

            Maybe spurs is the right fit for him Sue and could possibly find success with them, hopefully not though. He has an excellent player in son I have to admit 😶

          4. SueP says:

            With Son they have a fantastic player
            Always gives his all

  2. FootballisTrivial says:

    Why do Arsenal want Odegaard? Stupid decisions one after the other for a club that is supposedly not having a lot of money.

    And what a performance from a Tottenham today.

    1. Robert says:

      Absolutely, am just hoping that this is not true. What difference can Martin Odegaard make in this Arsenal team? He never did last season so I do really see what he brings to make a difference

  3. Kedar says:

    Spurs performance showed how good coach can change team performances

    1. Kev82 says:

      No Arsenal fan wanted NES though mate 🙄

      1. Ozziegunner says:

        Speak for yourself, Kev82😎

    2. Sue says:

      👍 And just think Nuno did the double over us last season…

      Bet he’ll put the Kane money to good use!

    If I was Arteta I would go and sign Adama traore.. sell Aubameyang. Move martinelli uptop let Adama traore play from the right. Also I will sign ramsdale. I rather have him than nobody. He is very good in the Air, he may not be a short stopper like Leno but his distribution is *100 over Leno’s. I’ve ran out of patience with Leno. And he went to relegation, I thought Pickford was relegated with Sunderland but look at him now. Also if we are not selling holding, play him along side Mari and play Ben white with lokonga. Xhaka needs some rest to sort himself out. I will also use tavarez at rb if we are not signing anyone there.

    1. Sue says:

      Steady on about Pickford! Yes, he was excellent in the Euros.. but put him in that Everton team and he’s bang average

  5. Nino says:

    Arsenal fans don’t want to believe that they coach is not good enough…is not all about players though some players are no longer good enough as well but they major challenge now is they coach…. but them can still do something now at least them have enough time to change things…them should sell Auba and buy correct winger like Adama or insane for Napoli

  6. Adiva says:

    If the is true, then neither our coach or people that work with him on transfer don’t what they are doing. It basically means Aouar is better. And when Auba and Laca are out of the door then Arteta has no excuses not to succeed as is closely having a team of his choice.

  7. GoalDan says:

    You know my old boss used to say “don’t come to me with problems but solutions “ or something like that lol
    What do we want right now ? What manager realistically could we get ? What players do we need ? Again realistically..
    The one thing all good teams do these days is work hard closing down or get into position, then transition in attack move forward with pace, it drives me nuts to see Pepe cut inside then pass it back which slows it down !! And why do we not ever buy tall midfielders any more…. Just a little rant….

  8. Robert says:

    Arsenal fan seem to know what the club really needs to move forward but those at the helm alway get it wrong. The end up buy dead wood from other clubs and later find it difficult to move the on. God help us.

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

    just imagine if we paid over the number, again, for Ode, only to see them get Aouar with half the funds they generated by unloading that lightweight, no foot in, Norwegian

    1. Ozziegunner says:

      TRVL4e, the question is why did Arteta want Houssem Aouar for £50+million last season, but doesn’t want him this year for a reported £20+million? Furthermore, Real Madrid are prepared to sell Martin Odegaard for £30-£40+ million, buy Aouar and keep the change, which looks good business on the face of it.
