According to the Daily Mail, Martin Odegaard’s father Hans-Erik Odegaard is anxiously waiting to see if Liverpool make a move for the player before deciding on his son's future. 

The youngster is expected to leave Real Madrid on loan this summer after failing to show he is ready for first team football just yet.

The midfielder has impressed Zinedine Zidane in training and when used as a substitute, but not enough to suggest he should be ahead of the likes of James Rodriguez and Isco in the starting line up just yet.

As a result, his representatives have planned talks with Madrid officials to make a decision about a loan move.

It is thought his preference is to head to a Bundesliga side, although other teams may be interested.

And according to the Daily Mail, his father Hans-Erik Odegaard is anxious to see if Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool make a move for his services.

Odegaard travelled to the club to look at their Melwood training facilities before opting to join the Spanish giants, but it is unlikely they would make a move.

Klopp currently has a number of options available to him in the attacking midfield positions, and Odegaard would find game time as hard to come by at Anfield as he does in Madrid.
