Haaland tells Arsenal boss Arteta how to get best out of Odegaard

Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has words of advice for Arsenal regarding Martin Odegaard.

The Norway star has made a loan move from Real Madrid to the Gunners for the rest of the season.

Odegaard was superb for Real Sociedad on loan in La Liga last term, but did not get as much game time when he went back to Madrid.

Holland is a huge fan of his countryman, and thinks he can excel in the Premier League.

"It will be interesting. Arsenal are a big club in England," Haaland told VG about the transfer.

"It's a bit different football, but I think he can fit in well with Mikel Arteta in the No.10 role. He can enjoy himself there.

"We know how good Odegaard can be. When he gains confidence with the ball, we know that the most incredible things can happen."
