Arsenal have a good relationship with Madrid after taking Dani Ceballos on loan and he has encouraged Odegaard to go where he will gain the best opportunity to play.

'Young players need to play regularly,' said Ceballos. 'At Real Madrid, I needed to know that I would have equal opportunities. I was obsessed with playing again.

'I wasn't getting minutes, but I realised it was best to work and reverse the situation and be important [with another club].

'If I do this [go on loan], I'll play again. It couldn't have been any clearer.

Talking to EFE, Ceballos added: 'I can tell you what happened to me at Madrid. I don't know exactly what will happen with Martin Odegaard, but it is obvious that any player who wants to succeed at Madrid is going to grab the opportunity he has.'

Arsenal have followed the Norwegian since he was a teenager and rate him highly. After allowing Mesut Ozil to leave, they are looking for a creative midfielder and have considered numerous options within a limited budget. Odegaard's teammate Isco was among those options but he was reluctant to move to London after his wife gave birth.
