Arsenal are preparing to offer their captain and one of the most important players, Martin Ødegaard, a contract extension that will last until 2030, according to Steve Kay.
Martin Ødegaard has been one of Arsenal’s stand-out performers since he joined the club back in the winter of 2021, initally on loan, before signing a contract in June of the same year.
His football intelligence, ball playing abilities and creativity has helped Arsenal and their youngsters to thrive this season and ultimately be right in with a chance to win the club’s first league title in 19 years, which no one expected at the beginning of the season.
Mikel Arteta is a big fan of The Norwegian, emphasised by making him club captain ahead of the 2022/23 season. His partnership with Saka is proving to be one of the best in the Premier League with the duo scoring a third of Arsenal’s goal tally this season in the league.
Arsenal are currently preparing a massive contract for Ødegaard, that will keep him at the club until 2030. This would make him the player with the longest contract at Arsenal, since Cesc Fabregas in 2006.
Ødegaard recently won player of the season at the London award ceremony & said in his speech…
“What we’re doing this year is very special. I feel proud to be a part of the team. There is so much more to come, and I am so excited for the future.”
There is no doubt that Arsenal’s way of playing is hugely dependent on the Norwegian. If Odegaard plays well, Arsenal typically play well. He’s the man who makes it all click.
His performances this season largely translate to Arsenal’s fantastic season, with him scoring 10 and assisting 6 goals, and has been key to Arsenal’s title charge.
