Arsenal is prepared to line up their bid to sign Martin Ødegaard on a permanent deal from Real Madrid.
The news comes after Real Madrid declined to offer the wonderkid on loan again preferring a permanent deal so as to cash in and bring in more players.
The Norwegian parted ways with Arsenal last season at the end of his loan spell and confirmed his return to Real Madrid as he looked forward being included in the plans of Carlo Ancelotti.

As it turned out, the youngster is likely going to miss playtime come next season and a move away from Spain will boost his career.
Both Mikel Arteta and technical director Edu have been keen to sign him as their number 10 player and any news will excite them.
“Arsenal are prepared to make a bid to sign Martin Ødegaard on a permanent deal. He’s always been Edu and Arteta’s priority as number 10.” Said Fabrizio Romano.
The Gunners have also been interested in Maddison of Leicester City even though an official bid has not been submitted as confirmed by the Foxes. Leicester City is not willing to sell and if they do then Arsenal will have to spend alot on him.
“Arsenal have an interest in Maddison but it’s not something that’s close. No bid and Leicester in no rush to sell. Keep an eye on Odegaard.” Said Fabrizio
