Paper round-up: Arsenal reportedly hopeful of Odegaard deal

Arsenal are reportedly hopeful of keeping Martin Odegaard beyond the end of the season.

The 22-year-old has impressed since arriving on loan from Real Madrid and the Gunners want him to stay.


And The Times reports that Arsenal believe Real may be open to agreeing a deal for him to remain after the end of his loan spell.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail reports that Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is open to one day managing Paris St-Germain, where he spent a season on loan as a player.

The story is based on Arteta telling BeIN Sports: “I love Paris. I have very good memories from over there. It was my first club as a professional.

“The club is always in my heart. You never know, but I have a lot of work to do (at Arsenal).”

Thiago Silva is reportedly set to sign a one-year contract extension at Chelsea.

The veteran defender was signed last summer on a one-year deal with the option of a further year.

The Daily Express say Chelsea are set to take up that option and keep Silva at Stamford Bridge for at least another season. 

Tottenham are lining up Dean Henderson, Nick Pope and Sam Johnstone as potential replacements for Hugo Lloris, according to The Sun.

The three goalkeepers have been called up to the England squad and The Sun claim all of them are on Spurs’ shortlist of possible signings this summer.


The newspaper also suggest West Brom’s Johnstone “could be the easiest and cheapest option” if the Baggies are relegated from the top flight.

And Galatasaray have offered Patrick van Aanholt the chance to join them on a lucrative three-year deal when his Crystal Palace contract expires at the end of the season, according to the Mail.
