Arsenal have come to an agreement on a fee with Real Madrid for Martin Odegaard.
Last week the two clubs were back in talks over the transfer of the Norwegian captain, and now sources close to the club have confirmed that the talks have come to fruition and he looks set to be heading back to the Premier League.
The 23-year-old will arrive in a deal worth €40m – just shy of £35m – making Odegaard the most expensive Norwegian of all time in the process.
While the two clubs have been talking, Real gave permission for Arsenal to engage in discussions with the player’s representatives and it is believed that personal terms are all but agreed.
Once the ‘finer details’ of the deal are finalized, Odegaard will sign a five-year deal in north London.
