Guillem Balague said on his YouTube channel what Arsenal promised to Real Madrid attacking midfielder Martin Odegaard.
The famous Spanish football journalist has claimed that Arsenal have promised the 22-year-old he will get plenty of minutes.
According to AS, the Gunners are set to secure the services of the Norway international on loan from Spanish and European giants Madrid until the end of the season.
Balague said on his YouTube channel: “About a month and a half or so ago, Arsenal thought they would leave him (Emile Smith Rowe) on loan, but things have changed lately as he has shown he has consistency. and the possibility of remaining in the first team.
“Maybe he can play wide if needed, in a different part of the pitch, or just be there while Odegaard adapts to the pace and the squad and the system of an Arsenal squad that has him. will play.
“This is what was promised. There will be a lot of minutes, and that’s why Arsenal became the biggest option, also because Real Madrid didn’t want to offer it to Real Sociedad.
Good signing for Arsenal?
Odegaard hasn’t played much football this season, having made three starts and four substitutes in La Liga and two Champions League appearances for Madrid, according to WhoScored.
The 22-year-old could take a while to get used to the way Arsenal play, but the youngster could prove to be a very astute signing for the Gunners.
The attacking midfielder has done well in his loan spells at Vitesse and Sociedad over the past two seasons and has plenty of experience for a 22-year-old.
Emile Smith Rowe has become Arsenal’s chief creator in recent weeks, and competing with Odegaard for a place in the starting lineup could be very healthy and bring out the best of both players.
