Arsenal have announced finalizing the signing of Martin Odegaard with the Norwegian youngster arriving on loan from Real Madrid for the rest of the season.
After completing his transfer, Odegaard confirmed speaking to Arteta before agreeing the move and the boss played an important role in his decision to join Arsenal. He told Arsenal.com:
“I spoke to him [Arteta] before coming here, of course. That was very important for me and he seems like a top manager and I liked his ideas, the way he sees football and also the way he is.
“He gave me a great feeling and that was important for me to come here. He was crucial.
“I think every time you go to a new place, you want to make sure that it feels good and that there is a plan. But I think everything here just seems good.
“I like the club and I always liked the way that the club wants to play. Everything about the club and now how the manager wants to play, I think it’s a club that really suits me well. So I think it’s a good match.”
Odegaard will wear the No.11 shirt and he becomes Arsenal’s second major signing of the January transfer window after goalkeeper Mat Ryan sealed a loan move from Brighton & Hove Albion last week.
