Klopp convinces Odegaard’s father to let Norwegian no.10 join Liverpool – Report
Liverpool fancy Real Madrid owned playmaker Martin Odegaard, who is currently tearing up trees for Real Sociedad in La Liga.
The report says that Odegaard has always been a Liverpool fan; that Klopp wanted the former wonderkid as far back as 2015 and that the player himself has had enough of Real Madrid due to a lack of chances they’ve given him over the years…
Odegaard has been jaw-dropping this term – and was man of the Match as his loan club Real Sociedad beat Real Betis 3-1 at the weekend.
We’ve included a highlight package from his performance in a video below, which you can check out for yourselves.
The 20-year-old can play as a natural, creative central midfielder or as a no.10 – two positions Klopp utilises heavily in either his 4-3-3 or the 4-2-3-1 he’s regularly switched to at points this season.
Odegaard will be very expensive as Real Madrid will not want to lose a potential world-beater, but Liverpool’s apparent interest makes sense to us. Adam Lallana’s deal expires at the end of this term – as does James Milner’s – so a boost in central areas could be necessary.
We love Odegaard’s attributes, vision and his incredibly high-ceiling, but at this point, very much understand there are no concrete links.
