Arsenal are now aware of the minimum amount Real Madrid will accept for the permanent transfer of Martin Odegaard

Although it was a poor season by their standards, one bright spot in Arsenal’s 2020/21 campaign was the outstanding form of Martin Odegaard.

The Norwegian stood out in most of the games that he played for Mikel Arteta’s side, and it was a foregone conclusion that the north Londoners would want to make the move for the midfielder permanent.

His loan deal from Real Madrid now finished, the player is once again left in limbo as to where his next destination will be, if any, however.

That’s because Arsenal may well be priced out of the market now, given that Defensa Central, cited by the Daily Express, suggest that Los Blancos want an absolute minimum of £51.5m for the player.

If the Gunners want to get to the next level, however, then the club will need to splash the cash.

If not on Odegaard then someone else, though it’s clear that someone with the Norwegian’s talent can’t be passed up if he’s available and wants to come.

    That’s totally taking Arsenal for a ride, paying such amount for a player they never liked nor played kept loaning him out and after half season performance they Wana milk us out, it’s a NO NO NO for me .
    We can get better players for less than that

      You said it best. Non for me too. If they won’t sell for 35mil they should use him.

      Fair point. Ceballos looked pretty decent his first go round with Arsenal, but I wouldn’t give you a bag of balls for him today.

      First you should look at the players in the market if they are available for now before dismissing that price and ask yourself are they available for Arsenal with our stutas of not playing in any European mojor competitions. I think we need to be very careful otherwise we will end up with third rate players like the previous two seasons
