Arsenal has a transfer bid set for Martin Odegaard, but the Gunners are awaiting two conditions.
Martin Odegaard has been linked with a return to Arsenal on a permanent basis ahead of the transfer deadline later this month.
According to rumors, Arsenal is preparing to make a formal proposal for Real Madrid midfielder Martin Odegaard, but the final decision on his future will be made by the Spanish giants and the player himself. Odegaard has been extensively linked with a move back to north London ahead of the new season, and is thought to be a top target for Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta.
Since the start of the summer transfer season, the Gunners have already added Albert Sambi Lokonga, Nuno Tavares, and Ben White.
Arteta, on the other hand, appears to be pushing for the signing of a creative midfielder before the end of the month.
Arsenal are in desperate need of at least one new playmaker, with Emile Smith Rowe and Joe Willock presently the club’s only natural No 10 alternatives.
Odegaard shone during his loan spell at the Emirates Stadium in the second half of last season, and he’s been linked with a permanent return.
Real Madrid is thought to be considering his future in the Spanish capital, while the player himself is thought to be considering a move abroad.
Arsenal is still interested in bringing Odegaard back to the Premier League, but according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, any successful approach will hinge on his present employers’ cooperation.
The Gunners are expected to make a formal offer for the 22-year-old if he decides to seek a new challenge and Madrid decides to cash in.
A permanent move is thought to be one of the options on the table, while another loan deal for the north London club, who have already spent £73 million on new players this summer, is also a possibility.
Arsenal are reportedly interested in Odegaard ahead of Leicester City midfielder James Maddison, who has been linked with the 13-time English winners in recent months.
Arteta is said to be interested in the latter, but whether the Foxes would be willing to let him leave remains to be seen.
As the east Midlands club prepares for a renewed assault on the Premier League’s top reaches, Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has already stated his wish to keep his best players this summer.
