Real Madrid winger Odegaard open about Arsenal loan switch

Real Madrid winger Martin Odegaard is warming towards the idea of a move to Arsenal.

Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claims the Real Madrid misfit, 22, is giving great consideration to the proposal from Mikel Arteta's side.

And he will discuss options with family members before deciding on a new destination before the end of the month.

Odegaard has told Real Madrid he wants to leave after making just nine appearances in all competitions this term.

Real Sociedad are understood to be favourites for the Norway international, who excelled there last year before having a two-season loan cut short by Los Blancos.

Ajax have also made an offer for Odegaard, who has enjoyed previous loan spells with Dutch outfits Heerenveen and Vitesse.

All three routes are extremely appealing for the playmaker, who famously joined Real when he was just 16 years old in 2015.
