He affirmed he will remained a Gunner and even participated in training despite being left out of Mikel Arteta Premier League and Europa League team selection.
Pundits called on Arteta to approach the German and discuss his comeback following a poor start of the season and lack of creativity in the midfield.
The lack of creativity saw Arsenal bundled out of FA Cup by Southampton on Saturday as they hold position 10 in the Premier League.
To solve the crisis, Arsenal have reached an agreement with Real Madrid to sign Martin Ødegaard on loan until the end of the season.
Martin Ødegaard has been termed as a good choice for Arteta given the kind of football the Gunners play as they consider a permanent solution to their woes.

Loan until the end of the season, salary paid by Arsenal. Arteta’s call key to convince the player. Medicals pending – then deal will be announced.” Said Fabrizio Romano
