Arsenal’s manager, Mikel Arteta, is feeling positive about signing a new contract with Martin Odegaard. According to Fabrizio Romano, Martin Odegaard will soon be signing a deal with Arsenal. The 24-year-old has showcased himself as one of the most important players for Arsenal over the past few seasons.
Odegaard joined the team in the winter of 2021 from Real Madrid. His initial contract with the team lasted a short period of six months.
The player managed to make an impression on the people at the London club during his time with the team, which lent him a permanent deal in the summer of the same year.
As the club approaches a new season, they are set to secure Odegaard beyond 2025 with a new deal.
Odegaard has come through to make a great impression on the spectators since his move to the English club. The club has given him more minutes on the pitch than at Real Madrid, and with every passing game, Odegaard has proved himself in terms of his value in the team.
The player’s great determination and composure have not just earned him worldly appreciation but also the captain’s armband.
Arsenal’s manager, Mikel Arteta, has now addressed the rumors, stating that he is in close touch with the player and his agent.
Arteta spoke about Odegaard’s contract deal ahead of the team’s clash against Everton on 17 September 2023. The Spaniard stated that Odegaard is an important player for his team.
He further continued to talk about the importance that Odegaard holds for the team now and in the future. He is extremely happy to have Odegaard on board and wishes to have him stay with the team for a long time.
Arteta will be announcing the news as soon as the deal is confirmed with the player.
