Arsenal and Manchester City are reportedly interested in luring the Real Madrid loanee Martin Odegaard to the Premier League
Former wonderkid returned to the spotlight following a stellar start to the 2019/20 La Liga campaign at Real Sociedad.
Two goals and two assists in seven top-flight outings for the Basque club have not gone unnoticed, with Wolverhampton Wanderers already expressing their interest in the left-footed playmaker.
But, according to the British outlet, Daily Mail, Wolves will face stiff competition from Arsenal, who are scouring Europe for Mesut Ozil’s replacement.

The Gunners are looking to offload the ex-Real Madrid star and replace him with another Los Blancos man, currently on the books of Real Sociedad.
Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola is known for keeping special attention towards technically-gifted players, and the Norwegian midfielder certainly fits the bill.
Not long ago, Los Merengues demanded £20million for the 20-year-old, but well aware of his progress at the Anoeta they have reportedly increased the asking price to staggering £62million.
Odegaard’s potential return to the Santiago Bernabeu is still on the cards, but Zinedine Zidane’s hesitation to offer him a place in the squad ahead of the new season might cost Real at this point.
