Derby County fans have had a mixed response to the rumours that they are interested in Martin Odegaard of Real Madrid.

The Daily Mirror have suggested that Odegaard is being tracked by Derby, after he was offered to them by Madrid.

 

And Rams fans seem to be divided over whether it would be worthwhile bringing the playmaker in.

Odegaard is regarded as a supreme talent, and a player with a bright future at Madrid, so it is understandable that some Derby fans are eager to see him in acton at Pride Park.

However, others are more cautious, as they feel Frank Lampard has all the attacking options that he needs already.

Odegaard is said to be on £30,000-a-week wages at Madrid, so meeting those salary demands could be difficult for Derby.

The Rams have started the season in rather underwhelming form, but there is still plenty of time for them to improve, as they get to grips with Lampard’s patient style.

Derby are in action later tonight in the League Cup, when they take on Oldham Athletic.
