Arsenal urged to AXE Martin Odegaard from team by Paul Merson until they secure permanent transfer for Real Madrid star

PAUL MERSON has urged Arsenal to axe Martin Odegaard until they can secure a permanent deal for the Real Madrid talent.

Merson told the Daily Star: “Martin Odegaard looks a really good player and I hope Arsenal have a chance of signing him permanently.

“Because if they don’t have a chance of making his loan permanent next season, why is he playing?

“If they know he doesn’t want to stay, he shouldn’t be playing because he’s taking opportunities away from people like Emile Smith Rowe.

“So I hope Arsenal have done their homework and know what the situation is – I’d be disappointed if they haven’t already made a bid to be honest.”

Odegaard has been a revelation at Arsenal since joining the club on loan until the end of the season.

The Norway star has scored twice for the Gunners, including in the win over rivals Tottenham.

Mikel Arteta has been extremely impressed with the attacker’s contribution since arriving in January.
