Liverpool should swoop for Martin Odegaard after Arsenal audition

Liverpool are going to be hard at work during the summer transfer window. Some decisive moves have to be made to address the lack of depth in the squad, if we’re going to compete at the top we have to compete with Man City’s quality on the bench. Liverpool should consider moving for Martin Odegaard after his impressive audition at Arsenal.

Overhaul needed

Jürgen Klopp needs more quality in depth than he currently has.

The Reds have struggled with injuries this season not just because of the injuries themselves but because there isn’t enough strength in depth to deal with the absences.

In many cases our backup stars have been injured themselves.

The midfield has been rife with such cases with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita missing large chunks of the season.

We could do with a top quality midfielder to come in and rotate in and out of the side, particularly with Gini Wijnaldum edging closer to an exit.

Liverpool should look at Martin Odegaard

This January Arsenal were also dealing with issues in their squad.

Mikel Arteta brought in one of Real Madrid’s brightest prospects on loan.

Prior to the midfielder’s switch to Madrid, Liverpool had been linked with a move for Martin Odegaard.

During his time on loan at Arsenal, the Norwegian has impressed.

Just 22-years-old but already boasting a wealth of first team experience, the playmaker has finally settled in and he’s starting to string together some impressive form.

This weekend he earned a 7.51 WhoScored rating for his part in the Arsenal comeback against West Ham, last weekend a 7.83 in the North London Derby.

Martin Odegaard Liverpool dream

Prior to joining Madrid, Martin Odegaard admitted his love for Liverpool, the Evening Standard quote the youngster as saying:

“Liverpool have always been my dream club.”

Arsenal don’t have the option to buy the Norwegian, meaning Liverpool can steal Martin Odegaard from them in the summer.

Should Madrid be looking for a buyer we should be well in the conversation; at just 22-years-old he’s only going to get better.
