Arsenal have just announced the new deal for Martin Odegaard. Their skipper has greatly improved them since he signed on a permanent deal after his initial loan spell. Mikel Arteta clearly has great trust in Odegaard, so much so that he has been inspired to compete with Manchester United for his countryman.

Arsenal compete for Martin Odegaard’s teammate Antonio Nusa

That’s right – According to Express, Arsenal will compete with Chelsea and Manchester United to sign the Norwegian winger Antonio Nusa, who plays for Club Brugge. The 18-year-old is valued at around £30m and part of an upcoming crop of young Norwegian players, thought to be the next best thing.

Antonio Nusa scored a goal and provided an assist as he played in the same Norway team as Odegaard which beat Jordan 6-0. He then followed this amazing performance up by providing two assists, one for Odegaard and one for Erling Haaland, as Norway beat Georgia.

It’s clear that Nusa and Odegaard have a good relationship with one another. Therefore, I’m sure the club skipper has had a say in this latest Arsenal pursuit.

Nusa plays primarily as a left-winger, but he can also do a job on the right. This would add more depth to Arsenal’s star-studded attack and provide some invaluable depth at right-winger, something they currently lack as Bukayo Saka is known to start every match available.

Fighting Chelsea and Manchester United will be hard but at the moment, Arsenal have greater pulling power than their two Premier League rivals. After all, we know that Arteta and Edu have a way with words which would be enough to convince most players to sign at the Emirates Stadium.

Do you think the Gunners will sign Antonio Nusa?
