Mikel Arteta has given the latest news on the loan signing of Real Madrid’s youngster Martin Odegaard in the current transfer window.
The Norwegian midfielder has been linked with a move to Arsenal from the Spanish giants after a lack of enough playing time under head coach Zinedine Zidane.
Odegaard was included in Madrid’s squad for this season after impressing on loan to Real Sociedad last campaign.
But things have not gone as planned for the 22-year-old who is seeking more playing time.
And when asked, in his post-match press conference after his side lost to Southampton in the FA Cup, if Arsenal are close to signing Odegaard, Arteta said:”I don’t know. Obviously we played today, so since last night I don’t have any news. Probably, I will get a few phone calls today and see where we are with every deal.
And whether the signing of Odegaard will hamper the development of Emile Smith Rowe:”I cannot talk about any player who is not ours. We have a very clear idea of how we want our players to develop and what they need to do that.
“All the decision we make are just to reinforce their development and try to give them the best possible chance.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
