Arsenal completed the signing of Martin Odegaard in the January transfer window on a six month loan deal and he had a lot of influence at the Emirates Stadium in the few matches that he played there as he showed how the North Londoners sorely needed a central attacking midfielder. Odegaard left Arsenal after his loan deal and returned to Real Madrid but the fans have called on the club to resign him this summer.
Arsenal was in a very big need of a central attacking midfielder in January and Martin Odegaard was impressive in the position as he even got two assists and a goal in the Premier League. Martin Odegaard released a statement a few weeks ago announcing his return to Real Madrid and the Arsenal fans believed that would be the end of their hopes of getting him back but it however looks like that might not be the case.
Football.London reports that Arsenal’s hopes of signing Martin Odegaard are still alive as the Norwegian international is open to returning to the Emirates Stadium and that Real Madrid wouldn’t be opposed to listening to offers for him in this summer transfer window. Odegaard has been at Real Madrid but he has never got significant minutes in the first team and the gunners will be hopeful that them being able to offer him game time sways him to return to North London.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is believed to be a big fan of Martin Odegaard and so it is likely that the gunners will be willing to wait for him throughout the whole transfer window as there is a big chance that he could push for a move to the Emirates Stadium.
