Martin Odegaard has joked Erling Haaland should join Arsenal if he plans on moving to the Premier League.

One of the game’s most feared marksman, the Norway international has scored 25 goals n 27 appearances this season and is widely expected to leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season.

Manchester City have been strongly linked with a move for the 21-year-old, although Real Madrid reportedly remain in the running in what is likely to a hugely expensive deal.

Arsenal themselves are looking to sign a new forward this summer after the departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in February, although even the most ardent supporter would surely admit City and Real would be more appealing moves for Haaland at this stage.

Odegaard, who lines up behind Haaland for the Norwegian national team, hailed his teammate as a “beast” who has “everything” to succeed in any league.

Speaking to Stadium Astro, Odegaard said: “He’s a funny guy, a good guy and he’s a good friend of mine a great players as well of course so we will see what he will do I don’t know.

“If he comes to England he needs to come to us of course but I don’t know what he will do but he is a great guy.

“To be honest we haven’t talked too much about it, I know he has so many people trying to ask him and to tell him what to do and I don’t want to do that.

“He’s a beast he’s strong, he’s fast, I think he has everything I think he can play in every league in every country to be honest.”
