With Mesut Ozil leaving Arsenal for Fenerbahce, this could be a hugely important signing for the north London club.
Mikel Arteta’s side have been short of spark and creativity in attack this season, with the form of last term’s top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang suffering as a result.
Luckily for the Gunners, Odegaard looks absolutely ideal to give them what they’ve been missing, as this impressive highlights video below shows…
The Norway international may not have had much playing time at Real Madrid, but he’s faced plenty of big-name competition for a place at the Bernabeu.
In his previous loan spells, however, Odegaard has shown his quality on the ball and superb range of passing, which should give Arsenal a much-needed new dimension to help them improve in the second half of the season.
