As we await the official confirmation of Arsenal’s agreement to sign Martin Odegaard to add creativity to the side, more details about the deal are stating to emerge.

We already know how much the loan is costing Arsenal in terms of a fee, but what about the player’s wages?

Although he had hardly played for Real Madrid this season, the contact they awarded him when he signed a six-year deal upon arriving in Spain means that the 22-year-old has certainly been well compensated.

In fact, with Arsenal agreeing to cover all of Odegaard’s wages, he will become the 12th-highest paid player at the club on £4m-a-year if these Real Madrid wages are correct.

Only Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£350k+pw), Thomas Partey (£200kpw), Willian (£192kpw), Alexandre Lacazette (£182kpw), David Luiz (£120kpw), Hector Bellerin (£110kpw), Dani Ceballos (£112kpw), Nicolas Pepe (£105kpw), Bernd Leno (£100kpw), Granit Xhaka (£100kpw) and Shkodran Mustafi (£90kpw) will earn more than Odegaard’s £85,000-per-week.
