Chelsea deal exposes Arsenals Martin Odegaard transfer mistake – Mirror Online
Martin Odegaard has hit the ground running at Arsenal but a permanent move could be beyond the Gunners.
The Norwegian was signed on loan from Real Madrid in January.
Mikel Arteta was in need of a creative midfielder and Odegaard has quickly acclimatised to the English top flight.
Arsenal are planning to discuss the player’s future with his parent club according to football.london.
But a permanent switch may hinge on whether Los Blancos are prepared to ignore the player’s £301 release clause.
Arsenal, when negotiating Odegaard’s loan move, did not include an option to buy nor did they settle on any future fee.
