Arsenal are reportedly ready to pay around €50million for the transfer of Martin Odegaard alternative.
The 22-year-old has done well at Arsenal so far, and it’s clear Mikel Arteta could do with an attacking midfielder like that after Mesut Ozil’s recent departure.
It seems the Gunners have now switched their attention to Barcelona misfit Philippe Coutinho, who has struggled in his time at Nou Camp, but who previously looked world-class in the Premier League during his Liverpool days.
If Arteta could get the Brazil international back to his best, he could end up being a superb signing to give the team a much-needed lift next season.
Still, it seems a risky one for AFC and one imagines their fans would much rather a deal could be done to keep Odegaard, or at least extend his loan.
The Norway international hasn’t been much of a regular at Real Madrid but his impressive displays in an Arsenal shirt could persuade the club to use him more often next season.
