Arsenal are reportedly glad to stand by until the late spring to hold chats with Real Madrid over a lasting arrangement for midfielder Martin Odegaard.
The Norway international has established a major connection since arriving on loan at the Emirates Stadium in the January window.
Mikel Arteta has shown that he might want to keep hold of the 22-year-old past the finish of the season, however his loan plan does exclude a right-to-buy option.

Despite the growing interest in the Stromsgodset academy product, Goal reports that Arsenal do not feel under any pressure to speed up discussions with Los Blancos.
The same report suggests that the Gunners could turn to Lyon’s Nabil Fekir if they miss out on a permanent deal for Odegaard.
