The Norwegian international midfielder who made 20 appearances for Arsenal during the second half of last season joins Arsenal for an initial £30m ($41 million) plus bonuses.

Odegaard joined Madrid at 16-year-old in 2015, but went on to make only eight La Liga appearances for the Spanish giants as he was loaned to Heerenveen, Vitesse Arnhem and Real Sociedad before joining Arsenal in January.

The 22-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan with the Gunners after failing to break into the Real Madrid team under Zinedine Zidane, and now returns to the Emirates Stadium on a five-year deal.

While speaking with the press, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said Odegaard has brought much aura to the team despite being young.

“A lot of things that he brought last season. He made us better, we needed more options and alternatives for creativity.

“He is still a really young man but he has huge experiences in clubs already and has unique talents for the way we want to play so I am really pleased the club have made the effort.”

Arsenal also expected to splash £30 million on England goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale from Sheffield United in the coming days.
