Arsenal have reportedlty made an enquiry to Real Madrid about a possible loan deal for Martin Odegaard, who has asked to leave the Bernabéu due to a lack of game time under Zinedine Zidane.

Odegaard came back to Madrid last summer after an impressive one-season loan spell at Real Sociedad, who had a two-year agreement in principle for the player.

However, the agreement was cut short by Zidane, who wanted the young Norwegian midfielder among his ranks for this season.

However, the 22-year-old has barely featured this season and has therefore asked to be sent on another loan assignment before the close of the winter transfer window. 

Martin Odegaard trains beforethe Spanish Super Cup Semifinal between Athletic Club Bilbao and Real Madrid Club de Futbol at La Rosaleda Stadium on January 14, 2021 in Malaga.

AS has learned that the Norway international has already spoken to Sociedad about a possible return to the Anoeta Stadium, where he shined last season. But Sociedad will not be the only option available to him.

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal are also interested in securing the services of the Norwegian midfielder following the departure of Mesut Özil, who recently left for Fenerbahçe after being written out Gunners coach Mikel Arteta’s plans.

Real Madrid are considering Arsenal’s proposal, according to Sky Sports' source, although the North London outfit could also face competition from another Premier League club.
