Real Madrid midfielder Martin Odegaard could be on his way back to Arsenal sooner rather than later.

Odegaard was a player that made a big impact with the Arsenal fans last season when he made the shock decision to leave Madrid on loan and get some game time at the Premier League giants until the end of the season.

Mikel Arteta made no secret that he wanted to keep hold of Odegaard at the start of the transfer window, but it seemed that he wanted to head back to Madrid and prove himself in that Real side.

However, despite all the reports that he wanted to stay, according to reports in Spain, as per @MadridXtra on Twitter, Odegaard has chosen to leave the La Liga giants who are now willing to sell him and a deal could be completed in the ‘next few hours/days

Real Madrid may have dropped the biggest hint yet that Odegaard is not part of their plans this season, with the Norwegian left out of their 21-man squad to face Alaves for their La Liga season opener.

Carlo Ancelotti’ s squad included midfielders such as Luka Modric, Casemiro, Fede Valverde, Lucas Vazquez, Isco and Antonio Blanco, but there was no sign of Odegaard

And football.london understands that the Gunners are set to make a formal offer for the playmaker after he signalled his intent to leave Real Madrid.

Roundup…

It is easy to see just why the Gunners were so keen to get Odegaard signed up early in the transfer window and are still keen to get a deal done, as Odegaard is a player that has huge potential

He has proven himself in the Premier League, so if the reports are true, surely Arsenal fans would be delighted to see him make that move back to the Emirates
