A Leicester City journalist has detailed an ‘ambitious’ move in the January transfer window for Martin Odegaard.
Speaking to The Chronicle, Jordan Campbell, who is the correspondent for Leicestershire Live, claimed: ‘Ambitious moves for Christian Eriksen and Martin Odegaard quickly fell by the wayside’.
Of course, Eriksen ended up staying at Inter Milan, and Odegaard has since moved to Arsenal on loan from Real Madrid for the rest of the 2020/21 term.
Nonetheless, it is very interesting to hear what might have been for the East Midlands club, especially with Odegaard.
Odegaard could have been a great signing for Leicester
Odegaard could no doubt have been a great signing for Brendan Rodgers’ team, especially given the recent lengthy lay-off for James Maddison.
The Norway international is currently thriving in the Premier League at the moment, recently scoring in the North London derby win against Tottenham Hotspur and picking up March’s player of the month award (POTM) for the Gunners.
Should Leicester sign Odegaard?
He is quickly starting to find his feet in English football, with Mikel Arteta describing him as a ‘talented’ player last month, and if the Foxes were to qualify for the UEFA Champions League for next season, then maybe they could come back in to try and sign him in the summer transfer window.
Nonetheless, it is a tale of what might have been for LCFC if they were able to sign Odegaard, but for now they have to sit back and admire the 22-year-old technician.
