The rise of Martin Odegaard and finding ‘home’ at Arsenal
When Arsenal bought Norwegian midfielder Martin Odegaard for £30m in 2021 the expectation among supporters wasn’t particularly high - and some didn’t understand why the club wanted to buy him.
After all this was a player who as a teenager was dubbed the “heir to Messi’s throne”.
But fast forward 18 months and he’s not only Arsenal’s playmaker, but possibly the best midfielder in the league. It’s been quite a rise for Martin Odegaard.
Mark Chapman is joined by Amy Lawrence and Michael Cox to discuss the Arsenal captain in detail
