According to the express reports, Premier League giants Liverpool could sign Real Madrid youngster Martin Odegaard on loan as player is keen on to leave Los Blancos for first-team football.
The 17-year-old starlet has endured a tough to settle in Madrid after making £3 million move from Stromsgodset in 2015, he has failed to impress Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti who has recently described Odegaard’s signing as a “PR exercise”.
With his fortunes failing to improve following the appointment of Zinedine Zidane, Odegaard is set to leave the club on loan this summer.
According to the Mail, Real are keen to find a German club to take Odegaard on, in order to gain first-team experience.
If they are unable to do so, with both Hamburg and Bayer Leverkusen said to be baulking at Odegaard’s lofty wage, Real would look for a German manager for him to develop under.
That would seemingly be Odegaard’s ideal scenario, with both the player and his father keen to seal a move to Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp is yet to make an enquiry as to Odegaard’s availability, and at this stage seems unlikely, with the teenager’s angling for a move undermined by his rejection of the club last year.
