ENGLAND – Arsenal have approached Real Madrid for attacking midfielder Martin Odegaard, according to Sky Sports.
Odegaard is eager to leave the Santiago Bernabeu in search of regular first-team football.
The LaLiga giants are currently considering the latest proposal from the Gunners.
Arsenal however face strong competition for Odegaard, including at least one other Premier League club.
Odegaard has struggled for game time under Zinedine Zidane this season, featuring just 12 times without scoring a goal.
The 22-year-old impressed while on loan at Real Sociedad last season, registering seven goals and nine assists across 36 appearances.
Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, is keen to bring in a creative midfielder this January, with Mesut Ozil out of the club.
