Martin Odegaard is on the verge of joining Arsenal on loan from Real Madrid, and the announcement is reportedly expected soon.
The 22-year-old’s Norway international teammate Erling Haaland and former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo have lavished praised on him in the past.
“Yes, I can simply split it (the hat-trick) in two (and share with Odegaard). It’s nice to play with Odegaard,” Haaland, as quoted by the Mail, said following Norway’s 4-0 win over Romania in the UEFA Nations League back in October.
And Ronaldo issued an exciting verdict of Odegaard after the duo trained together at Real Madrid for the first time in 2014.
“Great player, I think he’s a young boy, he can still grow. He’s 16 years old, right? So he has a good future ahead,” Ronaldo said. “We must give him time to learn, to take his best decisions.
“But I see a lot of potential in the player, good left foot.”
