Real Sociedad are in advanced talks to sign him by one week [leading the race over Ajax] , always been Martin’s priority by months.#AFC offer led him to take hours/days of reflection.

Arsenal are believed to be in the market for a new playmaker after cutting ties with Ozil earlier this month and believe the Real Madrid starlet will be a worthy replacement as they plot a January loan transfer.
Odegaard has already submitted a transfer request after making just nine appearances in all competitions for the Galacticos this term. Real Sociedad and Ajax are also understood to be chasing his signature. All three options appeal to the attacking midfielder, but reports suggest he is more interested in returning to Real Sociedad where he excelled in a two-season loan.
Manchester United were previously linked with a move but have cooled their interest after opting for Amad Diallo instead.
22-year-old Martin Odegaard has also enjoyed loan spells in the Netherlands with Heerenveen and Vitesse, so all three routes appeal to him.
The Gunners currently sit 10th on the EPL table after a slow start to the season but have recently found their spark, going unbeaten in their last five games, including four wins. Arsenal will surely hope Real Madrid attacker, Odegaard chooses them with limited options currently available in the January transfer market.
