English giants, Arsenal are reportedly lining up a bid for Real Madrid midfielder Martin Odeegard who is currently on loan at Real Sociedad from the record European champions.
The 20-year old Norwegian has started the 2019/20 Laliga campaign strongly scoring two goals and setting up three others. He stole the show last week when he set up a goal with a 25-yard defense splitting pass.
There have been reports claiming that Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is considering recalling him from his two-year loan deal with the Los Blancos coach keen on making use of the youngster who has been in the club’s books since 2015 and had already been labeled a flop.
Reports in the UK now indicate that the Gunners are considering a bid for the left-footed attacking midfielder. German midfielder Mesut Ozil is expected to leave the club in the Summer and club view Odeegard as a player capable of replacing the World Cup winner.
The main challenge, however, lies in the value Madrid has attached to the player who has played for Heerenveen and Vitesse in the last two years. According to reports, the Gunners will have to part with up 80 million pounds to secure his signature.
Hopefully arsenal can get shot of ozil in January and make a move for odegaard. Would be so much better for us

Expect to see literally every top club suddenly interested in signing Martin Odegaard. (Just saw the City, Arsenal rumors.)
The whole world knows he's destined for greatness.
But it's too bad for them, because there's no way Real sells.

Just see online arsenal are linked to a Real Madrid star worth £80mill to potentially replace Ozil.
Was thinking “must be Asensio”
It’s Martin odegaard.
