Martin Odegaard targets long-term Arsenal stay and dismisses suggestion of joining Liverpool

Martin Odegaard says he is keen to stay at Arsenal ‘for several years’ and has dismissed the idea of joining up with Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

The Arsenal captain has played a key role under Mikel Arteta as the Gunners currently sit top of the Premier League.

Klopp, meanwhile, has remained a keen admirer of Odegaard ever since trying to sign him during his time at Borussia Dortmund.

In an interview with Norwegian broadcaster NRK, Odegaard revealed he supported Liverpool as a boy but made it clear that his preference is to remain at Arsenal for as long as possible.

When asked if Liverpool must make an ‘incredibly good offer’ to tempt him to leave Arsenal, Odegaard replied ‘There is not much that can lure me away from here. I have a very good time here.

‘The way it is now, I can see myself being here for several years.

I want to do something special here. Take part in shaping the club and winning things. That is the big goal. The plan is certainly to be here for a while.

‘I’ve moved a lot over the years. Landing a bit and feeling like I’m in a place where I’m going to be, that’s a good feeling. Hopefully I will be here for many years.

‘When I came here, I really felt at home from day one. I was received very well, everything was very natural. I felt like part of the team and the group from the start, so it felt very good to come here.

‘Very nice people in the club. People who care about you and who really want you to succeed. Who really tries to do their part for you to succeed. And who have a bit of the same passion that I have, I feel, to really get better and work on things then. It was a good match right away.’
