Arsenal’s captain, Martin Odegaard, has signed a fresh five-year deal with the club, joining the ranks of players like Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, and William Saliba in securing their futures with the Gunners.
Last season, the 24-year-old midfielder, formerly of Real Madrid, contributed 15 Premier League goals and seven assists as Arsenal clinched the second spot behind Manchester City. So far this season, he has netted three goals across all competitions.
“It was an easy decision for me,” said the Norway international, who initially joined on loan from Real in January 2021.
“As I said many times, I felt connected and I felt at home here since the first day.
“Also, I was moving around a lot (during loan spells) and struggling to really settle down, so I felt like I needed a place to come and settle down and to kind of find a home.”
“What we’re doing is really special and the players see what the manager wants to do and how the club is progressing, the connection we now have with the fans,” he said.
“I think it’s a no-brainer for the players to be part of that. With so many hungry young players, it’s a great place to be.”
