Arsenal have managed to bring Martin Odegaard into the Emirates on loan from Real Madrid, and in doing so, many believe they have received a real injection of life from the Norwegian superstar. There’s every reason to think that this could be a blockbuster signing for them given the hype that’s behind him, but either way, it’s still a risky move.During his first interview since moving to North London, Odegaard credited Mikel Arteta with helping him make his decision.
“I spoke to him before coming here, of course,” Odegaard told Arsenal.com. “That was very important for me and 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 every time you go to a new place, you want to make sure that it feels good and that there is a plan. But I think everything here just seems good.
“I like the club and I always liked the way that the club wants to play. Everything about the club and now how the manager wants to play, I think it’s a club that really suits me well. So I think it’s a good match.”
Now, it’s time for Odegaard to go and prove himself in the toughest league in world football.
Will Odegaard be a success story at the Emirates?
