Excitement builds for Arsenal fans after Italian announces Odegaard announcement imminent
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Arsenal will announce the signing of Martin Odegaard in the coming hours.
Despite the Arsenal picking up some very good results over the past few weeks to get themselves back in the hunt for a top four spot, Mikel Arteta knew that he needed to add something different to his midfield.
And after news broke that Odegaard told Madrid that he wanted to leave the club as soon as possible, that opened the door for Arsenal to swoop in and bring the talented midfielder to the club until at least the end of the season
Odegaard enjoyed a stellar campaign with Sociedad last season and will add creativity and flair to the Gunners’ cause as they look to make a push for the top four in the second half of the season.
He Tweeted: £Martin Ødegaard has decided to join Arsenal over Real Sociedad ⚪️🔴
The deal is expected to be completed in the coming hours. #AFC and Real Madrid are in contact to reach the agreement – Real want a ‘simple’ loan until June.
Arteta spoke directly with the player – key factor.”
There is alot of excitement around the game about this signing for Arsenal as Odegaard really is a talented midfielder that has the ability to be one of the best in the game, he has just never been given a shot at Madrid.
It will be a real test for him in the Premier League, but at the end of the day, he is the type of player that Arsenal have been missing this season, and if the deal works out, it could lead to a permanent move for the lad.
