The French coach has relied on the veteran trident of Luka Modric, Casemiro and Toni Kroos this season, with few minutes given to young players.

The North London club, who currently have another Madrid player in Dani Ceballos on their books, aren’t alone in their pursuit of his services. Sevilla and Real Sociedad, the latter of which Odegaard spent last season on loan with, are both seriously interested.
