Arsenal are reportedly keen on a loan deal for Real Madrid attacker Martin Odegaard.
The 22-year-old has been restricted to just nine appearances for Los Blancos during the 2020-21 campaign, while he has only played just once in La Liga since the end of November.
A recent report claimed that the Norway international is keen on a move away from the Spanish champions during the January window in order to seek more first-team minutes.
According to Sky Sports News, the Gunners have approached Zinedine Zidane’s side over the possibility of signing the attacker on loan for the remainder of the 2020-21 campaign.
The report claims that Madrid are now considering the proposal from Mikel Arteta’s side, although one other Premier League club are also said to be in the hunt.
Odegaard returned to the Bernabeu for the current season after an impressive spell on loan at Real Sociedad, where he managed seven goals and nine assists in 36 appearances.
