Martin Odegaard has been compared to Mesut Ozil, who has literally just left Arsenal for Fenerbahce.

With Mikel Arteta seeking to add a bit more creativity to this Arsenal squad, the Gunners moved quickly in the transfer window to secure a transfer deal to bring Odegaard to the club after news broke that he wanted to leave Madrid.

Recent reports have revealed that he has now completed his medical, with an announcement very soon, but ahead of his arrival, Norwegian journalist Pal Gorden Nilson believes Odegaard is similar to the World Cup winner Ozil

He told talkSPORT 2: “I don’t think Arsenal should really think now that this is the new Mesut Ozil.

“He’s the kind of player like Ozil, he’s a creative midfielder, a No.10 player.

“Perhaps he could give some good passes to [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang and [Alexandre] Lacazette.

“He’s creative, talented, but Arteta needs to get the best out of him to really see the real Martin Odegaard. He’s very talented.

“He made his debut for Norway at 15 years old. He still hasn’t shown his full potential.”

On his day, Ozil is a very special player that was one of the very best players on the planet, but towards the end of his career at the Emirates, there was not enough good performances from the German star.

If Odegaard can hit the ground running, he will show his class,, but will he get enough chances to shine by the end of the season?
