Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta says, they want to keep Martin Odegaard at the club. The player joined The Gunners on a loan deal from Real Madrid and he is already giving the fans reasons to want him joining on a permanent deal.
The fact the 22-year-old has broken into Arsenal’s best side so quickly is clear evidence of his ability. Mikel Arteta insists they’re solely focusing on getting the best out of him for now. Any talks over a permanent transfer will take place later.
“We have Martin for a few months from Real Madrid and first of all, we have to maximise this time with him to try to bring to the team all the qualities he has,” Arteta said. “At the end of the season, we will sit together and decide where we can take that relationship forward. At the moment it doesn’t just depend on us.”
Reports suggest Odegaard pushed for the move in the first place, and Real Madrid could be open to selling a number of players this summer to raise funds. But Spanish media suggests they are unwilling to give the midfielder up for good.
