Arsenal ready to step up interest in permanent Martin Odegaard signing with Real willing to sell to fund summer rebuild

Odegaard’s Arsenal stint

Martin Odegaard would, of course, join Arsenal in the winter window after spending much of the first half of 2020/21 in a bit-part role with Real Madrid.

Since making the switch to the Emirates, though, Odegaard has become an essential part of Mikel Arteta’s set-up.

The Norwegian’s clear quality has shone through and he has provided some much-needed creativity in Arsenal’s final third.

Odegaard would open his Arsenal goalscoring account with an absolute rocket vs Olympiacos:


His exploits have also recently earned him first first-ever Arsenal Player of the Month award:

Real Madrid willing to sell Odegaard

Given his recent showings, the Arsenal faithful will no doubt be hoping that is not the only POTM award he wins for their club, and that the 22-year-old is able to stay in north London beyond the summer.

However, speculation in March suggested that Odegaard returning to Arsenal next season may be quite difficult.

First, reports in Spain suggested that Real Madrid were ‘not contemplating a transfer’ for the midfielder.

It was then suggested that several other clubs, including Liverpool, were showing an interest in Odegaard.

However, The Times are now claiming that Arsenal are ready to step up their interest in the permanent signing of Odegaard after it became apparent that Real would listen to offers to help fund their summer rebuild.

As we have previously covered, word in Spain suggests that Los Blancos want to sign both Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe this summer.
