MORNING, ARSENAL FANS
The Gunners have bolstered their ranks by reportedly completing the signing of Martin Odegaard for around £30million.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the deal is complete and the North Londoners have agreed on personal terms with the Norwegian.
Odegaard, 22, is believed to have agreed a five-year contract with Mikel Arteta’s men.
He starred on loan at Emirates Stadium during the second half of last season, scoring twice and assisting another two goals in 20 appearances.
Another midfield target Houssem Aouar has reportedly been transfer listed by Lyon supremo Juninho.
But according to the Mirror, Arsenal’s prioritising of Odegaard has made a further move for Aouar unlikely – with rivals Spurs now in the driving seat for the French international.
Another former midfield target Manuel Locatelli yesterday completed his move to Juventus from Sassuolo.
The Gunners had been keen on the Italian after his stellar performances at Euro 2020.
In other transfer news, Arsenal are set to sign Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, according to reports.
The North Londoners were linked with the Blades stopper earlier in the window, but baulked at their £35m valuation.
According to David Ornstein, however, the two parties have agreed on a fee worth an initial £24m, with another £6m in potential bonuses likely to only be reached if Ramsdale becomes Arsenal’s No1.
