Klopp keeps an eye on Odegaard!
In difficulty at the start of his career at Real Madrid, the Norwegian international multiplied loans (to Heerenven, Vitesse Arnhem and Real Sociedad), without much success. It is finally at Arsenal that Odegaard seems fully fulfilled. Definitely bought by the Gunners during the 2021 summer transfer window for 35 million euros, the attacking midfielder has since had good performances. At 23, Mikel Arteta fully relies on him and has made him one of his basic men on the pitch. Arsenal’s number 8 has scored 3 goals this season in 7 Premier League games, and contributes greatly to the Gunners’ current leadership position. Under contract with the London club until 2025, Jurgen Klopp would still be interested in signing the attacking midfielder, this time for Liverpool. But the Norwegian seems set to continue his career at Arsenal, at least for now.
