After being coveted by great world teams, Martin Odegaard has a new home. Arsenal announced the signing of the young Norwegian on Wednesday morning. He comes on loan until the end of the season. The English team has no purchase option at the end of the contract.

Odegaard has been treated like a jewel by Real Madrid since he was 16 years old. However, the 22-year-old Norwegian has not had space with ZIdane. He arrives at Arsenal after having already loaned to some teams like Real Sociedad and Heerenveen, from the Netherlands.

“We are very happy to have Odegaard until the end of the season. He has exceptional talent. We are building a strong squad and having a well represented offensive sector is very important”, commented the Brazilian Edu Gaspar, Arsenal’s technical director.
