Reports: Arsenal eyeing Martin Odegaard as Mesut Ozil’s replacement

Latest reports in Spain, as relayed by Football.London, suggest that Arsenal are eyeing a move for Martin Odegaard as a potential replacement for Mesut Ozil, who recently joined Turkish outfit, Fenerbahce.

The Norwegian player earlier this week was reported to have asked Real Madrid to allow him to leave following a lack of playing time.

That raised the possibility of the player rejoining Real Sociedad but Arsenal have now joined the race as they have reportedly expressed keen interest in the 22 year-old.

Following the departure of German International Mesut Özil, space has been created for market activity at the Emirates, with the Gunners looking for a replacement who can compete with Emile Rowe.

Mikel Arteta could bolster his attack with the inclusion of the gifted playmaker. The former Stromsgodset prodigy can even been deployed as a central midfielder if necessary, making him a potential alternative to Dani Ceballos.

The Gunners have a good relationship with Real Madrid in recent years. So it will be interesting to see if they can use that to their advantage in the pursuit of Martin Odegaard, although it remains unlikely that Los Blancos would want to offload their star asset permanently.
