AS Monaco are moving to trump Premier League clubs for Norwegian superkid Martin Ödegaard.

Just 15 years old, the Stromsgodset midfielder has been called up to the full Norway squad this week for their friendly against the UAE.

"This is unbelievable and a dream come true. Actually, I'm in shock," said Ödegaard.

The teen has been linked with Manchester United, Manchester City, Juventus and Tottenham.

However, it's understood the only club to make a serious effort to open talks with Stromsgodset for the youngster is Monaco.

Indeed, ASM, which has close ties to Norwegian football, believe Ödegaard can succeed James Rodriguez, now with Real Madrid, as their future No10.
