The Sun claims that Arsenal head coach Unai Emery wants the Norwegian to replace Mesut Ozil in his squad.

Emery appears to have called time on Ozils Arsenal career, picking him only for the Carabao Cup or Europa League, and hes actively seeking a young talent to take the Germans place in the dressing room.

One for the future

According to Spanish outlet El Desmarque, Emery has identified the 20-year-old Odegaard as a star for the future.

Currently on loan at Real Sociedad, Odegaard has been on fire this season and was recently named the clubs player of the month for his creative role in lifting them to fifth in the La Liga table.

But he wont come cheap with the Sun reporting that Real Madrid are likely to ask Arsenal to hand over £71m in exchange.

The paper says that Emery wants to get shot of the 30-year-old but “his huge wages are set to be a stumbling block”.

So desperate are the Gunners to send Ozil on his way, says the Daily Mail, that they “would be willing to pay part of his wages to pave the way for his exit”.
