Martin Odegaard news

Odegaard fit for Arsenal

Arsenal have been handed a big boost with Martin Odegaard having avoided an injury on international duty with Norway.

The playmaker has been hugely influential for the Gunners this campaign. He has registered six goals and two assists in the Premier League.

Odegaard recently suffered an ankle injury scare as he was spotted limping on Norway duty, but he appears back in training once again.

The Gunners captain has been working individually in Tenerife, Spain and should link up with his teammates for the Dubai tour.

The north London giants will start their preparation for the second half of the Premier League with friendlies against Lyon and AC Milan.

They will return to the English capital following that for another friendly. They are scheduled to host Juventus at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal are currently five points ahead of Manchester City at the top of the league standings and have an outside chance of winning the title.
