Sky Sports are claiming that Arsenal have made an approach to take Martin Odegaard on loan from Real Madrid – and supporters have been reacting on Twitter.
The Gunners are scouring the market for bargains having done superb well to lower their wage bill this month.
Sead Kolasinac and Sokratis have both departed, whilst Mesut Ozil looks set to end his Arsenal nightmare with a move to Fenerbahce.
Odegaard has fallen way down the pecking order at the Bernabeu and boss Zinedine Zidane is willing to allow him out on loan.
The 22-year-old arrived at Los Blancos as a wonderkid in 2015 and he has 11 first-team appearances to his name.
He has failed to hold down a place in the capital just yet, spending time on loan at Heerenveen, Vitesse and Real Sociedad.
It was in San Sebastian last season that he highlighted his credential at first-team level; scoring seven goals and claiming nine assists from 36 outings.
Following the links to the £85,000-a-week performer, Arsenal supporters have taken to Twitter to discuss the possibility.
It seems clear that plenty believe he would be a stunning capture for the Gunners.
Here is what the fan base are saying as Arsenal hope to pounce.
The guy is immensely talented and he has proven it. If we get him on loan , we should try to do it with an option to buy in the summer.
