His performances have attracted interest from Wolves and Arsenal. The Gunners want to bring Odegaard to North London next summer as a replacement for Mesut Ozil according to El Desmarque (via Sport Witness).

Wolves have submitted a bid of €22 million for the Norwegian international according to Don Balon who also claim that Real Madrid won’t let him go for anything less than €80 million.

Manchester City have also joined the race to sign Odegaard according to El Desmarque. This report claims that Pep Guardiola wants the 20-year-old winger next summer as a replacement for David Silva who will leave the club then.

Odegaard has been touted as a future star for a while now and it seems that he can have his breakthrough this season. Given Real Madrid’s asking price, Manchester City have a better chance of landing the Norwegian than Arsenal and Wolves.

With Silva departing next summer, Odegaard could be a pretty suitable replacement for the Spaniard if City manage to sign him.
