Arsenal have reportedly secured the permanent signing of Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid.
As Futaa reported last month, Arsenal had been waiting with bated breath for Madrid to accept the Gunners’ £42m offer to sign the Norwegian talent.
The 22-year-old impressed in North London while on loan during the second part of last season. But as contract rules dictated, Odegaard had to report back to Madrid for preseason.
Despited having Emile Smith Rowe, an additional attacking midfielder was needed since the departures of Mesut Ozil and Dani Ceballos.
Securing Odegaard further means that the Gunners will no longer consider Leicester City’s James Maddison, who was a plan B.
Meanwhile, Mikel Arteta’s side is focused on hosting the European champions Chelsea at the Emirates this weekend
