Toni Kroos sends six-word message to Arsenal star after Friday annoncement
Martin Odegaard completed a permanent transfer from Real Madrid to Arsenal on Friday, which prompted a six-word message from Toni Kroos.
Arsenal announced on Friday that they’ve signed 22-year-old Odegaard on a permanent basis. This comes after he spent the second half of the previous campaign on loan with them.
The attacking midfielder has joined to try inject some extra creativity in the final third, especially after the disappointment of a defeat to Brentford in their Premier League opener.
He knows all about the club from his loan spell, which included a goal in a win against Tottenham in a north London derby.
The Norwegian has finally ended a six-year spell on the books at Spanish giants Madrid. He went out on four separate loans before eventually finding a permanent home in England.
Odegaard expressed his delight over the transfer with a heartfelt message on Instagram. Madrid ace Kross responded with a six-word comment praising him for taking the No-8 shirt.
“Great number choice! All the best,” he said.
Arsenal transfer has to be next step for Odegaard career
Aged 22, it’s time for Odegaard to shake off the tag of being a young rising star.
He may still be relatively young, but he’s got bags of first-team experience and a permanent move away from Madrid suggests he’s ready for the next step.
There were flashes of brilliance from the left-footed creator during his loan spell with Arsenal. However, Arteta needs him firing more regularly in a side that desperately needs help.
