Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool fans are feeling disappointed here in the Football Transfer Tavern, after hearing from the Express that Southampton are eyeing a loan move for Real Madrid star Martin Odegaard.
Ronald Koeman’s Southampton are the surprise team vying for the signature of European football’s most wanted young star.
The publication suggests that Koeman has sent scouts to watch the 16-year-old in action for Real Madrid’s reserve team.
A pocket of Southampton fans by the dartboard inside the Transfer Tavern are getting extremely excited about the news, and are heading to the bar to get a round of Tequila shots!
As the landlord quips at the bar, it would certainly be some coup if the Saints managed to acquire the signing of Odegaard, even if it is just on loan.
A plethora of United and Arsenal fans inside the Tavern feel that it would be a shame to miss out on the 16-year-old, but do feel he may not actually be ready for the demands and rigours of Premier League football.
Manchester United and Arsenal fans…. Would you be gutted to lose out on Odegaard? Would he be able to cut it in the Premier League? Let us know your thoughts below!
