Arsenal today completed the signing of Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid in a deal believed to be worth around £30m.
The Norwegian captain has signed a five year deal, having spent 6 months on loan with us last season.
The 22 year old will wear the number 8 shirt, following in the footsteps of such luminaries as: Aaron Ramsey, Mikel Arteta, Freddie Ljungberg and Ian Wright.
Sadly, we’re going to have to wait for his second debut as post-Brexit requirements mean he has to be issued a visa which has not come through in time.
But welcome back Martin. We’re sure you’ll be gr8.
