Arsenal to explore permanent deal for Martin Odegaard

Arsenal are keen to keep Real Madrid loanee Martin Odegaard at the club next season and are prepared to pursue a permanent deal for the Norwegian in the summer.

The 22-year-old, who managed just nine appearances for Real in the first half of the campaign, has impressed since moving to the Emirates Stadium in January. He has already managed more appearances for Arsenal and bagged his first Premier League goal in the derby victory over Tottenham Hotspur.
