Norway Flag

Martin Odegaard has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool and Real Madrid.

Liverpool target Martin Odegaard is to train with Arsenal, only days after taking part in a couple of training sessions with the Reds while on tour of England.

The 15-year-old attacker has dominated the headlines in recent weeks as a result of an increasing reputation following an impressive breakthrough season at Norwegian outfit Stromsgodset.

A number of clubs are said to be monitoring his progress, and reports in Spain yesterday claimed that La Liga giants Real Madrid are aiming to sign him on a five-year contract within the next ten days.

The Reds also harbour hopes of a concluding a deal and did their prospects no harm after inviting the full Norwegian international to participate in training.

Still, the young star has already said on occasions that his affiliation with the Anfield outfit will not affect his decision, and he appears keen to consider his options, accepting a trial at Premier League rivals Arsenal.

“Martin Odegaard is set to continue his tour of England by training with Arsenal — just days after having a run out with Liverpool,” a report in The Sun confirms.

The Gunners are renowned for investing heavily in their youth and over the years a number of top players have gone on and become a fixture in the first-team.

It appears Arsene Wenger has also been taken aback by the player’s immense potential, and he will be cautious not to repeat the Cristiano Ronaldo mistake and miss out on football’s next world star.
