Arsenal Makes A U-Turn Over Signing Real Madrid Duo

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has not yet completed his plans to overhaul the clubs squad. The gunners has also brought in 3 players and in negotiations with more. The north London club want to compete with the rivals for trophies and champions league position. The club is interested in signing Real Madrid duo [Odegaard and Isco ] on a permanent deal.

Arsenal's hopes of re-signing Martin Odegaard might not be over. Odegaard had made his decision to say at Madrid but with his playing time limited at the club, he is reconsidering returning to English premier league. The 22 year-old is valued at £50m. Carlo Ancellotti has not held talks with the two players and it's believed with the club's financial situation, could be easily triggered to sell them.

Isco on the other hand has struggled in the past one season mostly being affected by injuries. The Spanish international could cost upto £25m according to Mundo Deportivo. The 29 year-old has also been on the transfer radar of Chelsea. With Mikel Arteta aware of next season competition and after seeing his rivals signings , he doesn't want to risk his weak squad.

Some question the ‘success’ of his [Odegaard] spell in north London while others have waxed lyrical over some of his most stirring performances. With talk intensifying of the Norwegian eyeing a move back to Arsenal and his former employers still holding a strong interest in him, is it the right move?

According to AS sports, a Spanish outlet, Real Madrid and Arsenal will be having negotiations on Monday to discuss the deal of the two players. The two clubs have had a good relationship when it comes to transfer business and they are expected to reach good terms that every part could enjoy.

The gunners could try and make a £55m on Friday as further AS sports claim. The clubs technical director Edu want Arteta to be fully supported especially after last season's disappointment.
