Odegaard has had a good week

Talks will be opened with his parent club Real Madrid at the end of this campaign but a deal could be impacted if Arsenal fail to qualify for Europe. Real Madrid are thought to be willing to sell the midfielder this summer as they look to raise funds for signing either Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland.

Odegaard has hinted he is keen to extend his stay at the Emirates. ‘I said many times that I have been looking for stability [at the same club], but haven’t found it,’ Odegaard told VG.

‘I think it will be important to find stability. I am very happy at Arsenal, enjoying myself. I like it here. ‘Now my focus is to finish the season then we will see.’
