Arsenal Complete Martin Odegaard Signing

By Agency Report

Arsenal have made an official statement to confirm that they have signed Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid on loan. The 22-year-old Norwegian international has joined the Premier League heavyweights for the remainder of the 2020/21 season.
Odegaard was touted for big things upon returning from his impressive loan spell at Real Sociedad, having been recalled from a two-year spell with La Real early, last summer. However, the 22-year-old has struggled to nail down his spot in Zinedine Zidane’s side, managing just nine outings in all competitions till date. His situation alerted Arsenal, who have quickly moved to sign him.
The interest from Arsenal makes a great deal of sense, seeing as they have lacked a genuine creative powerhouse in the squad this season. While Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka provided respite in recent weeks, the Gunners have still been in need of another out-and-out attacking playmaker, especially following the infamous departure of Mesut Ozil.
On his part, the young Norwegian was intent on temporarily leaving Real Madrid, which brought Arsenal on the verge of signing him this week. With Los Blancos unwilling to let him join Real Sociedad again, Arsenal became the favourites to sign him and have now secured his services. Upon his arrival, Mikel Arteta expressed his delight at having landed Odegaard.
The Arsenal boss said, “It’s great that we’ve secured Martin to come to us until the end of the season. Martin is of course a player that we all know very well and although still young, he has been playing at the top level for a while. Martin will provide us with quality offensive options and we’re all excited to be integrating him into our plans between now and May.”

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has joined Fenerbahce on a three – and- a -half -year deal after last playing for the Gunners in March , both clubs announced on Sunday .

The 32 -year -old German was omitted from Arsenal ’ s Premier League and Europa League squads this season and his reported deal on a weekly salary of £ 350 ,000 ( $475 , 000 ) was set to expire at the end of the current camapaign.
“ I’ d like to thank the club for this amazing journey over the past seven -and -a -half years, ” Ozil, who won the World Cup with Germany in 2014 , said in a statement.
“ Together we won trophies for the first time in years and created memories that will last a lifetime, ” he added.
Ozil , who is of Turkish origin, was heavily criticised in Germany for posing for a photograph with Turkey ’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in 2018.
Erdogan was also the best man at the player ’ s wedding in Turkey .
Ozil ended his international career after what he described “ racist ” attacks following the holders’ first- round exit at the 2018 World Cup.
Fenerbahce , one of Istanbul ’ s three big clubs, are currently third in the league behind Besiktas .
Ozil joined Arsenal from Real Madrid in 2013 and lifted the FA Cup on three occasions under then-coach Arsene Wenger.
After starting the first 10 games of Mikel Arteta ’s reign as boss in north London, Ozil ’s last appearance came in a win over West Ham last March before the coronavirus pandemic saw football grind to a halt last year .
“ Mesut ’s achievements at Arsenal are undisputed. It was a privilege to play alongside him and, more recently , coach him ,” Arteta said on the club ’s website .
“ These successes will always be part of our history . We thank Mesut and wish him all the best with Fenerbahce .”
In December 2019 , Arsenal also distanced themselves from comments Ozil made on social media criticising China ’s treatment of the Uighur population .
