Arsenal Eye Transfer For Martin Odegaard As Mesut Ozil Replacement But Resurgent Real Madrid Star Will Cost £71m

 Arsenal are lining up a move for Norwegian ace Martin Odegaard

Arsenal are reportedly lining up a bid for Real Madrid playmaker Martin Odegaard.

EL Desmarque claims Unai Emery wants the Norwegian to replace Mesut Ozil next summer.

Odegaard, 20, appears to have finally found his form after years in the wilderness following a high-profile to move to Real at the age of 15.

His time in the academy was far from straight forward, but loan spells in the Netherlands with Heerenveen and Vitesse helped secure a move to La Liga giants Real Sociedad this summer.

He has since been in terrific form, scoring twice and assisting once in just six appearances to be named Player of the Month.

And Arsenal are now said to be looking at bringing Odegaard to the Premier League.

Ozil has fallen down the Emirates pecking order under Unai Emery.

Dani Ceballos is the preferred No 10 for the Gunners right now.

But his deal from Real Madrid is just a loan, and there is every chance Zinedine Zidane will want him back at the Bernabeu.

However, Odegaard could be available for transfer after failing to make the grade for Los Blancos.

But Arsenal may have to spend as much as £71m to secure his signature.
