Arsenal signed Real Madrid attacking midfielder Martin Odegaard on a loan until the end of the season.
The 22-year-old Norwegian has struggled with Real Madrid lately, and he’s yet to make an impact on the field.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta spoke on Odegaard:
“Martin is of course a player we all know very well. Although still young, he has been playing at the top level for a while.”
Odegaard also commented about Arteta and his new club:
“He seems like a top manager and I liked his ideas, the way he sees football and also the way he is. He gave me a great feeling and that was important for me to come here. He was crucial. I think it’s a club that really suits me well.”
Odegaard could have a chance to play Saturday in Arsenal’s Premier League matchup against Manchester United.
