According to a recent report from Mundo Deportivo, Arsenal are still interested in trying to sign Real Madrid midfielder Martin Odegaard.
Odegaard enjoyed a successful loan spell with the Gunners last season and while the overwhelming hope was that they would be able to take it one step further, it would never be a guarantee.
Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly assured Odegaard that he will have a role to play in this Madrid side, but the extent of that role has yet to be confirmed. An eleventh starting spot obviously isn’t something that was given just for fun at the Bernabeu, but if Odegaard were to return to the Emirates, you can bet he’d be one of their featured stars.
Arsenal will not play in any kind of European competition between now and the end of the current season, but in many ways that could work to their advantage.
