Norwegian midfielder Martin Odegaard is ready to sign a new deal with Arsenal to extend his stay in North London.
According to 90min, Arsenal are ready to offer Odegaard a significant pay rise to keep him at the club. The midfielder has been in sensational form this season after he was named the club captain last summer.
Odegaard established himself as one of the best midfielder in the Premier League. It’s comes as no suprise that Arsenal want to tie him down on a long-term deal.
Meanwhile, The Athletic reported this week that Arsenal will offer Odegaard a new contract after they’ve finished working on deals of Bukayo Saka and William Saliba. The 24-year-old is ready for his long-term future at the Emirates.
As per 90min reports, Odegaard’s agents are happy to sit down with Arsenal and discuss a new contract. The talks will take place in coming weeks and Gunners are ready to offer the midfielder a significant pay rise.
Gunners chief Edu Gasper want to reward Odegaard for his contribution to the team this season. The midfielder has scored fifteen goals and provided seven assists this term.
Arsenal will be looking forward and will make some crucial changes ahead of a crucial summer. They’ll look to close down the gap on Manchester City after they’ve seemingly missed out on the title.
However, Arteta will be full aware of the need to add quality to his squad and it will be crucial for Arsenal to secure the long-term futures of their key players. Odegaard certainly falls in that category and the Gunners will be more happy to discuss fresh terms.
