Martin Odegaard was offered to Tottenham Hotspur, claims David Ornstein

Speaking on The Athletic’s The Ornstein & Chapman Podcast, reputed journalist David Ornstein has revealed that Real Madrid midfielder Martin Odegaard, who is set to join Arsenal on loan, had been offered to Tottenham Hotspur among other clubs.

The 22-year-old has been with Real Madrid since 2015, having joined from Norwegian club Stromsgodset as a teenage prodigy. However, he has never quite been able to carve out a place for himself in the first-team at the Bernabeu.

That changed though, after a brilliant loan spell at Real Sociedad, which made everyone stand up and take notice. As a result, Real Madrid held on to him this past summer but Odegaard has once again found game-time hard to come by. And thus, he is on his way to the Premier League on another loan spell, with Arsenal set to sign him up. (h/t Sky Sports)

However, it could have all been very different as Odegaard had been offered to a host of other clubs including Tottenham prior to him deciding to join Arsenal, Ornstein has revealed.

“There were some other clubs who were offered him, in talks with him. Real Sociedad again, Leicester I think might have had him mentioned, Spurs and a couple of others – but Arsenal moved pretty decisively. Edu has done a good job.”

Odegaard might have found game-time hard to come by at Real Madrid. However, his talent is undoubted. Bringing him in on loan could have been a smart move, more so considering Dele Alli’s future at the club is uncertain.

His creative abilities could have come in handy in the second half of the campaign. However, the Norwegian is on his way to our rivals.
