Real Madrid playmaker Martin Ødegaard will join Arsenal on loan for the rest of the season after the clubs agreed to terms this evening.

That is according to The Athletic, who report that a temporary move has now been given the green light by both parties.

The Norwegian will fly to London on Sunday ahead of undergoing a medical with the Gunners on Monday morning, when it is expected the deal will be made official.


Given his status as an elite sportsperson, Ødegaard is also exempt from COVID-19 quarantine protocols, meaning he will not have to self isolate, if he returns a negative test.

The 22-year-old will be Arsenal’s second signing of the window after the acquisition of Mat Ryan from Brighton.
