Here’s the latest from Simon Collings on Arsenal’s pursuit of Martin Odegaard…

Arsenal are hopeful of wrapping up a loan deal for Real Madrid playmaker Martin Odegaard.

The 22-year-old wants to go out on loan for the second half of the season so he can get more playing time, and Real Madrid have accepted his demands.

Real Sociedad, where Odegaard played last season, are interested in signing him but Arsenal are now growing in confidence that he may join them instead.

The Gunners are in talks with Real Madrid over a loan deal until the end of the season and are hopeful an agreement can be struck.

Arsenal have been on the lookout for an attacking midfielder during the current transfer window to provide competition for Emile Smith Rowe.

At 22, Odegaard is young and hungry to prove himself - which makes him an ideal addition to Mikel Arteta’s squad.

Real Madrid are thought to view the Norwegian as a long-term prospect, though, and as such any deal is unlikely to include the option for Arsenal to make it permanent.

Bad news for the Premier League clubs wishing to sign RB Leipzig star Dayot Upamecano.

Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are all among the teams to be linked with the French defender, but now Bayern Munich’s interest has seemingly been confirmed.

Upamecano signed a new contract at Leizpig only last year, but has a £37m release clause that is due to become active in the summer.

“We will of course deal with it, not only with this player, but in principle with all the positions where we want and need to do something,” Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said yesterday.

On a potential agreement, he added: "It's too early for something like that, he's still a Leipzig player at least until the end of the season.

"But it's common knowledge that he has a clause in his contract."

1611299458No Leicester loan for Eriksen

Leicester’s hopes of securing a high-profile deal for ex-Tottenham star Christian Eriksen look to be over already.

According to The Telegraph, the Foxes lodged an enquiry with Inter Milan about the possibility of taking the Dane - said to be keen on a return to the Premier League after a poor spell in Serie A - on loan for the rest of the season.

However, Leicester are said to have quickly baulked at Eriksen’s £300,000-a-week wage packet that Inter seem to want covered in full.

1611299261West Ham plot new King bid

It seems that West Ham will not give up on their hopes of signing striker Josh King.

The Sun reports that the Hammers are now plotting a deal worth £16m for the Norwegian international having previously seen a bid of £13m rebuffed by Bournemouth.

West Ham are desperate to sign a new striker after offloading Sebastien Haller to Ajax, though their pursuits of King, Montpellier’s Gaetan Laborde and Sevilla’s Youssef En-Nesyri have thus far proved fruitless.

However, they face a significant battle on that front with Sport1 in Germany now reporting that the England Under-21 international, 17, has no intention of leaving Bavaria at this stage.

However, this is definitely a situation to monitor, with Musiala - formerly of Chelsea’s academy - still having yet to agree an extension to a Bayern contract that is due to expire in the summer of 2022.
