Ødegaard to be offered new contract

Arsenal are set to offer their captain Martin Ødegaard a lucrative new contract.

The Norwegian joined the Gunners initially on loan from Real Madrid two years ago, before the deal was made permanent.

The 24 year old was made captain when both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexander Lacazette left the club, and has responded to the challenge by establishing himself as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League.

The Gunners want to reward him by almost doubling his salary making him one of the highest paid players at the Emirates.

He has 7 goals and five assists in 16 appearances this season.

Ødegaard is already under contract at the Emirates until 2025, but the club are now hoping ot secure his long-term future at the club.

It is part of a broader policy of securing the services of all their best players, avoiding past mistakes by not allowing them to run down their contracts.
