  • PSG monitoring Norwegian's availability
  • Arsenal unlikely to let him leave

WHAT HAPPENED? Odegaard was handed the Arsenal captaincy at the start of the season and really stepped up to the plate for the Gunners. His 15 goals and eight assists in the Premier League were vital in Arsenal's title charge, and he is now attracting interest from across Europe.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The Daily Mail have reported that PSG have made contact with Arsenal over a potential move for their captain this summer. The Gunners are reluctant to let Odegaard leave as he is central to Mikel Arteta's plans going forward, and would require a giant fee to consider letting the Norwegian move on this summer.

AND WHAT'S MORE: As the Gunners gear up for a return to Europe's elite competition, the board will reportedly back Arteta with over £180 million to get the squad up to scratch. This may increase, depending on player sales and although unlikely, selling Odegaard may add a huge chunk to the already sizeable budget at the Spaniard's disposal.
