Arsenal’s major January business was the acquisition of Martin Odegaard on loan from Real Madrid. Odegaard has always been known to be a very talented player but has had little to no playing time at Real Madrid with the likes of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Federico Valverde all ahead of the Norwegian in the pecking order.

Odegaard’s loan spell at Real Sociedad was enough to convince Zinedine Zidane to call him back to the Los Blancos team but this lack of minutes has seen him at Arsenal on loan again.

Odegaard can bring a lot to Mikel Arteta’s side if used properly. At Real Sociedad, the Norwegian was a specialist at driving the ball into the most dangerous spaces. Odegaard has quick feet and often makes timely decisions on the ball which makes him distribute the ball towards teammates in the best position to score a goal.

The introduction of Odegaard into the Arsenal midfield would also reduce the workload on Emile Smith Rowe, who is also known for being a huge creative force. While ESR takes up the left midfield role, Odegaard is more dangerous when he operates on the right-inside channel. Here, he can take up the role of drifting towards the area as he is very good at dribbling.

At Arsenal, Odegaard can form a formidable link-up with the likes of Nicolas Pepe, Bukayo Saka, and Emile Smith Rowe. Odegaard would function well in Mikel Arteta’s much-favored 4-3-3 formation with Emile Smith Rowe, Martin Odegaard, and Thomas Partey forming a formidable midfield formation. Odegaard’s present in the final third could be a dangerous weapon for Mikel Arteta’s men.
