Arsenal end Martin Odegaard interest
Arsenal have reportedly ended their interest in re-signing Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid this summer.
The Norwegian joined the club on loan in January, and he made a good impression in his 20 appearances.
Odegaard registered two goals and two assists, and he also produced several key passes in the final third.
It was recently claimed that the Gunners were optimistic of re-signing Odegaard on loan or permanently.
However, The Athletic reports that the club have ended their pursuit after knowing that Odegaard will stay put.
Los Blancos recently reappointed Carlo Ancelotti as their manager, and he is prepared to play Odegaard next season.
The legendary Italian likes to operate with a number 10, and Odegaard could get the chance to prove his credentials.
The Gunners are already looking at alternate options. They have recently been linked with Leicester City's James Maddison.
Mikel Arteta is a huge admirer of the England international, but he could cost a staggering £80 million this summer.
