Arsenal were initially told playmaker Odegaard would be staying put.

But Odegaard is said to be concerned about how many minutes he will get under new boss Carlo Ancelotti at the Bernabeu.

And Los Blancos are now believed to be willing to let the Norwegian leave... however only on a permanent deal.

Casemiro, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are said to be Ancelotti's preferred midfield options.

Real have set their Odegaard asking price at £42.5million.

And, according to football.london, Arsenal reckon a deal is there to be done.

Madrid believe the midfielder does have a future at the club, but won't rule out sanctioning a sale if the player asks to leave and a their valuation is hit.

The LaLiga giants are hopeful Odegaard decides to stay at Real, despite reports suggesting the player is unsettled.

An ongoing debate inside Real is whether Odegaard is ready to step up and stamp down a first team place, succeeding an ageing Modric.

Or whether the player isn't up for the fight and is looking for a way out.

Real are preparing for massive changes at the club, in particular in the midfield.

Modric has just a year left on his current deal, and midfield partner Kroos is 31.
