Martin Odegaard has signed a new five-year contract with Arsenal, committing to the club until the summer of 2028.
The Norwegian midfielder initially joined Arsenal on loan from Real Madrid in January 2021 before making his move permanent during the summer.
Since then, he has become an integral part of the team under Mikel Arteta, even serving as club captain at times.
Odegaard’s previous deal was set to expire at the end of the next season, and Arsenal made his contract extension a priority.
Talks between the club and Odegaard’s representatives reportedly progressed positively, with the 24-year-old expected to receive a substantial pay increase in the region of £120,000-per-week.
He has had a strong start to the season, scoring three goals in six games, and Arsenal currently sits fourth in the Premier League.
