Martin Odegaard reveals he sought advice of three Norway team-mates before Arsenal loan move

Published

Martin Odegaard has revealed he sought the advice of fellow Norway stars Joshua King, Sander Berge and Stefan Johansen before completing a loan move to Arsenal in the January transfer window.

The 22-year-old midfielder was keen for a temporary escape route out of Real Madrid after struggling for minutes under Zinedine Zidane and the Gunners wrapped up an agreement to take him on loan until the end of the season.

After being eased into the first-team by Mikel Arteta, Odegaard has quickly become a key player in north London and produced a sublime individual performance as the club came from 3-0 down to draw with West Ham last weekend.

Speculation has been mounting that Arsenal will look to sign the Norway captain on a permanent basis, with Arteta reportedly telling the board to do everything in their power to extend his stay beyond the summer.

‘I’m really happy to be honest. Everything is good in the club,’ Odegaard told the Premier League’s official YouTube channel.

‘I have felt at home since the first day and I get along well with my team-mates and everyone in the club and I feel really good.’

Everton forward King and Sheffield United midfielder Berge are two of the latest in a long line of Norwegians to ply their trade in the Premier League and Odegaard picked the brains of both players before agreeing to join Arsenal.

‘I also spoke to another guy who used to play at Fulham, Stefan Johansen.

‘Yeah, I spoke to both of them!’ he added.

‘He was the former captain of the national team so I spoke to him to know a little bit about the league and how they saw the league.

‘They had only good things to say about the league and everything here from the football and they told me a lot of good things.

‘The Premier League is really big in Norway so I grew up watching it every week and everyone in Norway follows the league so close.

‘It’s a dream to be able to play here.’

According to Spanish outlet Sport, Arsenal could turn to Juventus attacking midfielder Paulo Dybala if they fail to reach a permanent agreement for Odegaard this summer.

However, it’s unclear whether Dybala would have any desire to join the Gunners given they are currently languishing down in ninth place in the Premier League and are unable to offer Champions League football.

Just In: New pictures of Arsenal’s 2021/22 away kit leaked

Published

on

The first pictures of Arsenal’s first team squad sporting next season’s away kit have been leaked.

After this season’s, bloodshot eyes shirt, the club are returning to a more traditional yellow and blue combination for 2021/22.

The shade of yellow – ‘pearl citrine’ in adidas parlance – may look a little like custard but the use of the stripped-back cannon badge is a nice touch.

We expect to see similar shots of the home and third kits in due course. The latter is predicted to be blue with a lightning motif inspired by the kits of the mid-nineties.
