These outlets claim that Ødegaard had wanted to succeeded at his parent club Real Madrid, but is considering moving away once again to North London. The report states that neither his camp nor the club have ruled out the possibility of the Norwegian leaving this summer.
Real Madrid journalist Arancha Rodriguez confirmed (via Twitter) that the 22-year-old has indeed wanted to try his luck with Arsenal again, but has not offered any further developments.
Yes. He wanted. We will see what happens!— Arancha Rodríguez (@AranchaMOBILE) July 27, 2021
This would certainly not be ideal for Real Madrid if a move is pushed through at some point during the current transfer window. The club has only signed David Alaba so far and they are relying heavily on the current available players for at least the first half of this coming season.
Arsenal have reportedly been looking for a midfielder as they have been linked to Sassuolo’s Manuel Locatelli and Lyon’s Houssem Aouar. Ødegaard already has Premier League experience after joining Arsenal on loan in January.
As Arancha tweeted, we’ll have to see what happens if any further developments occur leading up to the transfer deadline on August 31.
