Odegaard joined the Gunners on loan from Real Madrid in January 2021, before making the transfer permanent the following summer for a price of £30 million.


His previous contract was set to expire at the conclusion of the season, and the Gunners made his future a primary concern.


The Norwegian midfielder has now signed a contract extension with the club until the summer of 2028, making him the club’s highest-paid player.He obtained a significant wage boost from his prior contract, which was worth almost £120,000 per week.


Speaking after his new contract was announced, Odegaard said: ‘It was an easy decision for me. I felt connected and I felt at home here since the first day.

‘And also I was moving around a lot and struggling to really settle down, so I felt like I needed a place to come and settle down and to kind of find a home.


‘(There are) amazing people here at the club, the fans as well, everything around the club is just a good match for me.

‘Of course, I am thinking about it (winning trophies). That is the big dream, the big goal, to win things with the club. That’s why I have signed here as well, because I believe we can achieve some great things.’

Odegaard has made 112 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions, scoring 27 goals and providing 15 assists.
