The journalist claimed that the Norwegian star’s move is 90 per cent done and looking good for Arsenal.
The Gunners have been after an attacking midfielder all month, being linked with the likes of Emi Buendia and Dominik Szoboszlai, and it looks as though they may finally be about to land their man.
Odegaard has been linked with a move to the Gunners this week, but it seemed as though he was favouring a move to Real Sociedad, but with Ornstein being one of the most reliable journalists covering Arsenal, it looks as though this one could be close to being done.
The left-footer is an exciting talent, and Arsenal will be getting a top player for the remainder of the season if they can get this one over the line.
The former BBC reporter, who is generally pretty reliable when it comes to the Gunners, has confirmed reports from earlier this week that the London club have joined the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham in pursing the England international.
Considering Arsenal’s limited transfer budget, fans on Twitter can’t understand why manager Mikel Arteta would invest so much in a centre-back:
With the likes of William Saliba, Rob Holding, Calum Chambers, Gabriel and Pablo Mari all in the squad, it does seem strange that Arteta is so intent in bringing on another centre-half.
It must simply be the case that the Gunners boss doesn’t rate the players he currently has at this disposal. What that means for the future of players like Saliba, we shall have to wait and see.
