“Serious talent, terrific work ethic, great mentality” Piers Morgan joins Odegaard fan club

Piers Morgan has become the latest Arsenal fan to call for the club to sign Martin Odegaard permanently.

The Norwegian joined them on loan in the last transfer window to help their chances of ending this campaign in fine fashion.

He had struggled for minutes at Real Madrid and there were doubts that he could make the grade at Arsenal and if he would make any meaningful contribution to the team.

Mikel Arteta seems to have done his homework on the midfielder before signing him because the Spaniard has been fielding him and has gotten rewarded with some fine performances.

He has been in good form lately and was one of the best Arsenal players as they rallied from 3 goals down to draw 3-3 against West Ham today.

His performance in the game delighted Arsenal’s fans including Morgan who has now called for the Gunners to sign him.

He joins the likes of Ian Wright to say the midfielder has been excellent and it only makes sense for the Gunners to keep hold of him.

He tweeted: “This guy just put in a better performance than we saw from Ozil in the past 5yrs. Serious talent, terrific work ethic, great mentality. We need to sign him permanently. #Odegaard #afc

  1. He does look a real talent. The conundrum is the better he plays the higher his price at the end of the season. Or RM says, thanks a bunch, we’ll keep him. In the meantime ESR is either on the bench or playing out of position. Another point, if we don’t qualify for Europe I can see him looking elsewhere. It’s going to be an interesting Summer window!

  2. Martin Odegaard has now put in more first team performances at Arsenal than he has played at Real Madrid. There is a possibility that his head can be turned and he may request a transfer. He appears to get on well with his team mates and is happy with the Club and the “project”.
    One should not discount player power should a player not want to stay. Also Real Madrid will want to buy players, because of their current league position and the Club’s ambitions. Due to the economic impact of the pandemic, they will have to sell. Odegaard is not favoured by Zidane and if he stays, Arsenal have a chance.
    As for ESR, he is 19 (whereas Odegaard is 22 and a full international) and accordingly in his first full season, given his injury record, his playing time has to be well managed. His continued development is a real plus for Arsenal.

    1. ESR will be 21 in July btw!!! Do you think Odergaard will be happy to join us if we’re out of Europe and other big clubs come for him? That was one of my points which I think was a valid one considering how modern footballers tend to be swayed by money and potential trophies.

  3. The boy will stay at Arsenal next season whether on loan or permanent deal, unless Zizo leaves his post as Real Madrid manager then we stand no chance of keeping him

  4. I like his ball control and a winning mentality plus toward attitude, yes we need him , but Auba is not a winner, we must use martineli more than him

  5. I am warming to him, he obviously has talent but he isn’t going to be an Arsenal player, for obvious reasons, that isnt happening.

  6. We wont be able to afford him, Real will keep him if he excells, bigger teams than us will come in and will Real sell him anyway, only a few reasons.
