Mikel Arteta says Martin Odegaard is happy at Arsenal and has confirmed that he will have the full backing of the Gunners owners this summer.
Mikel Arteta said: “I speak with him every day. I see his face, his body language and he seems really happy right now here. Our contract with him is until the end of the season. What we have to do is try to make him perform, develop and be as happy as he can be.”
Meanwhile, Arteta has confirmed that he has the full backing of Arsenal owners Kroenke Sports and Entertainment going in to the summer transfer window.
Mikel Arteta said: “The team is going to reflecting in better performance, results and at the end of the season we’ll see where we are and have a discussion. We know that certain scenarios can vary and that we cannot control. They’re going to be dependent on things today we can’t determine, but the plan is to go ahead with what we want and I know they fully agree with that and they’ve been fully supportive of us.”
Odegaard, 22, has impressed during his loan spell from Real Madrid so far, scoring important goals against Olympiacos and Tottenham and putting in a domineering display as the Gunners came back from three goals down to draw with West Ham a fortnight ago.
