Arsenal steal the show on Wednesday

Arsenal haven’t enjoyed the greatest of transfer windows, and their start to the season has further dampened the mood of the fanbase.

However, the doom and gloom of the fanbase turned into a jubilant celebration on Wednesday as the Gunners made some serious strides in the market.

Martin Odegaard Arsenal transfer

Yesterday, we reported that the Gunners are in advanced negotiations with Real Madrid over Martin Odegaard. Those negotiations came to fruition on Wednesday as both clubs agreed on a fee of around €40m. The Norwegian international soon arrived in London to have a medical and sign paperwork. As per the report, he has signed a five year deal with the Gunners, and he is expected to feature in the league game against Chelsea on Sunday.

Transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano confirmed the move on his Twitter account. He also added that Odegaard was always the number one target for the Gunners this summer, and they had been in his pursuit since June. The deal also consists of a first-refusal clause for Real Madrid.

Hours after securing Odegaard, Arsenal also reached an agreement with Sheffield United for their goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale. As per reports, both clubs had reopened negotiations for the English international on Tuesday. It seems like it didn’t take long for them to come to an agreement.

Reliable journalist David Ornstein has confirmed that Arsenal have had a bid of £24m (+£6m in addons) accepted by the Blades. The 23-year-old will sign a 4 years (+1 option) deal with Arsenal.

Arsenal had multiple bids turned down by United, who reportedly valued their player at £40m. Last week, it appeared that they had walked away from negotiations. However, talks restarted this week after United agreed to lower their asking price.

Sheffield United also dropped Ramsdale from their Championship encounter with West Bromwich Albion.

After the game, United boss Slavisa Jokanovic said: “The deal is not complete but it’s agreed between the clubs. I believe the agreement is close to being done but it can be soon. It’s not really what I want but it’s difficult to stop this kind of situation. It’s a huge deal for the club.”

I have been writing about the beautiful game for the last 6 years contributing articles to The Daily Mail, Vocal, Fan Sided and many other publications.
