Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly considering a shock move for Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard after being impressed by his recent form.
The Norway international was one of the Gunners’ most important players as they mounted a valiant title charge. Ultimately, they finished the season five points behind Manchester City.
Mikel Arteta will be desperate to keep hold of his best players. So, it could take a monumental offer from PSG to convince Arsenal to sell.
In 37 appearances this season, Odegaard scored an impressive 15 goals, along with making eight assists.
Interestingly, this gives him the joint third-highest goal lally from any midfielder in a single Premier League campaign, trailing only Matt le Tissier and Dele Alli.
Now, according to the Daily Mail, PSG have taken note of Odegaard’s exceptional displays and are considering making a move.
However, they note that any potential deal will be difficult. The midfielder is reportedly ‘happy with life in London’ and is ‘key to Arteta’s plans going forward.’
Indeed, if Arsenal want to challenge for the Premier League title again next season, keeping hold of their best players, like Odegaard, is essential.
