A.Villa X Arsenal

  • Arsenal are having to do some soul searching after missing out on Emi Buendia\u2019s signature after the Argentine agreed to join Aston Villa, turning attentions back to Martin Odegaard, who Edu is \u2018convinced\u2019 he can strike a deal with Real Madrid for.\nIt\u2019s irrelevant whether Buendia was worth the total \u00a340m outlay or not, missing out on him after he was swayed by a Villa side sitting 11th in the Premier League is not the rip-roaring start to the summer window. Arsenal had tracked him for over a year.\nHe may flop horribly under Dean Smith (unlikely), but from a PR point of view seeing a player snub Arsenal in favour of a bottom half team casts a shadow over the Gunners\u2019 supposed pulling power. They must now dust themselves down and move on with the hope that other targets aren\u2019t seeing these pursuits play out in failure, resulting in their own interest affected.\nMartin Odegaard, for everything that has happened since January, appears to have grown an affection for Arsenal. Always speaking in glowing terms of the club, its players and the manager, even his on-field demeanour gave the impression of someone who had embraced his surroundings.\n\n\nThe thing with Arsenal's reported transfer targets this summer is that Odegaard and Buendia are very, very different\nIf it's both, I understand it, but it can't be given lack of \u00a3\u00a3\u00a3\nBut if it's one or the other, I'm intrigued\/vkDkr3c8xb\n\u2014 Tom Worville (@Worville) May 31, 2021\n\nArsenal \u2018convinced\u2019 of Martin Odegaard summer transfer from Real Madrid after missing out on Emi Buendia\nUnfortunately he isn\u2019t a Gooner, nor does it appear Real Madrid are overly keen on extending his time as one.\nAs per, however, Edu remains \u2018convinced\u2019 that a deal can be struck to see Mikel Arteta reunited with the Norwegian, either on a permanent move or with a loan extension.\nThe latter of those deals is interesting. In many ways, another 12 month loan move would be ideal: Arsenal get the midfielder back for a season, pay a nominal fee and can cross something off the to-do list. If that\u2019s concluded then a hefty chunk of money is saved and can be invested elsewhere.\nWhat is achieved by that, though?\nIn January, bringing Odegaard in on loan was excellent business. His time with the club was a bit of a mixed bag, but when on-song he was a delight to watch. The deal itself was a coup, bringing in an exciting No. 10 from Real Madrid to add numbers in a department with Emile Smith Rowe as the token flag bearer, for next to nothing. Of course, a playmaker should have arrived six months prior.\nIt\u2019s therefore understandable that he is wanted back. Arteta may only have two or three months to save his job when the season commences, and he\u2019d rather trusted lieutenants who know the place to steer him in the right direction.\nAnother loan, however, solves nothing, unless Arsenal actually start to commit.\nContinued\u2026\n\n \n Next:\u00a0Odegaard on simple loan solves nothing\n \n"},"title":"Arsenal 'convinced' of Martin Odegaard summer transfer","permalink":"https:\/\/\/2021\/06\/07\/arsenal-convinced-odegaard-transfer\/2\/","shortCodeTitle":null,"content":"\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\n\t\t\t\t\t\tArsenal predicted lineup to face Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday could feature Martin Odegaard (Photo by SHAUN BOTTERILL\/POOL\/AFP via Getty Images)\n\t\t\t\t\t\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\n\t\t\nArsenal Have to Commit to Martin Odegaard or Move on\nSimilarly with the idea of wanting Ryan Bertrand at left-back on a two-year deal, bringing Odegaard in for 12 more months is simply delaying a problem that will crop up again further down the line.\nIf Arsenal really want Odegaard then they need to commit to him. Regardless of fan view, if Arsenal\u00a0truly\u00a0believe he\u2019s the ideal No. 10 target then pull out all of the stops to get him.\nShould that come via a loan then it must include the purchase option, or even obligation, in it. That would suit better than any as the money would be saved for the following summer with the same commitments towards the player.\n\u00a350m is way beyond what Odegaard is currently worth and a deal at that price would set a worrying precedent for the remainder of the transfer window: it\u2019d be League Two scouting for full-backs and trialists for central midfield. However, at least it would show intent.\nMissing out on Buendia was a case of dallying. Taking the eye off the ball and being too confident that Arsenal had a bigger pull than Villa, who went on the charm offensive and sealed the deal.\nIf Edu and Arteta want Odegaard then a simple loan doesn\u2019t show it. It\u2019s almost the ideal scenario in many ways but it isn\u2019t sustainable. That would be 18 months of minutes spent on someone who isn\u2019t staying. Dani Ceballos, for example, was 24 months of minutes wasted that impacted the likes of Joe Willock.\n\n \n \n Next:\u00a0Arsenal eye Neves\n \n \n\n\nIf you want him go get him. Properly. Although not at \u00a350m, that\u2019s silly money."],"useSlideSources":true,"themeType":"classic","prevPost":"https:\/\/\/2021\/06\/06\/arsenal-3-players-missed-transfer\/","nextPost":"https:\/\/\/2021\/06\/07\/arsenal-2-important-contracts-summer\/","prevText":"Prev","nextText":"Next","buttonWidth":0,"buttonWidth_post":0,"postUrl":"https:\/\/\/2021\/06\/07\/arsenal-convinced-odegaard-transfer\/","postId":116206,"refreshAds":true,"refreshAdsEveryNSlides":1,"adRefreshingMechanism":"javascript","siteUrl":"https:\/\/","prevText_post":"Prev post","nextText_post":"Next post"}; (function ($) $(document).ready(function () try tpsInstance = new tps.createSlideshow(tpsOptions); catch(e) ); (jQuery)); (function () // create the elements and set all attributes:var conversationScript = document.createElement('script');conversationScript.setAttribute('async', 'true');conversationScript.setAttribute('src', ' _SG3QiGdm');conversationScript.setAttribute('data-spotim-module', 'spotim-launcher');conversationScript.setAttribute('data-post-url', ' -convinced-odegaard-transfer/');conversationScript.setAttribute('data-post-id', 'f1ea4c42063de9b05c317ad7e503cca0');conversationScript.setAttribute('data-spotim-multi-instance', true);conversationScript.setAttribute('data-article-tags', 'Arsenal');conversationScript.setAttribute('data-disqus-url', ' -convinced-odegaard-transfer/#!');conversationScript.setAttribute('data-disqus-identifier', '116206 =116206');// append the elements to the container:var container = document.querySelector('#comments-wrapper-116206');container.appendChild(conversationScript);)(); Top StoriesPain in the Arsenal 1 yearArsenal: 3 striker options enough for next season?
