Martin Odegaard insists ‘you never know what’s going to happen’ as the midfielder’s loan spell at Arsenal comes to an end.

The Norwegian joined the Gunners on loan last January from Real Madrid, after cutting short a stint at Real Sociedad.

Odegaard has had a hit and miss spell at the Emirates but Mikel Arteta is keen to keep the playmaker, though they may be priced out by Madrid’s £50m asking price for the Norway international.

Speaking ahead of Arsenal’s 1-0 win against Chelsea on Wednesday, Odegaard was asked about his future and says he’s unsure where he’ll be next season.

‘You never know what’s going to happen,’ Odegaard told Sky Sports.

‘Every time you step onto the pitch you want to do as well as you can and you want to try to win.

‘Today we play against a top side who are in the Champions League final. That’s a great motivation for all of us to show our qualities and to show that we have something to do against these sides.’

Arsenal’s chances of landing Odegaard could hinge on where they finish this term.

The Gunners’ win helped the side into eighth, keeping their slim hopes of a European finish alive.

Chelsea and Liverpool have both been linked with Odegaard, with Madrid believes to be keen on cashing in.
