Three English juggernauts have expressed their interest in Real Madrid wizkid Martin Odegaard.

Odegaard was the centre of all attention when he secured a sensational transfer to Real Madrid at a tender age of 16. However, he failed to crack his way into a star-studded first-team immediately, and has made just two senior appearances for Los Blancos so far.

At present, the Galacticos have loaned the starlet out to Real Sociedad, where he has been in stunning hot form.

Having bagged 2 goals, 1 assists and created the most chances in the entire Spanish top flight in just six appearances this season, he has once again caught the eyes of Zinedine Zidane.

According to The Sun, Real Madrid have an option in the loan deal that would enable them to recall the youngster just months after his departure from the Bernabeu.

Meanwhile, other clubs have joined the race for the 20-year-old’s services as well, particularly Premier League giants Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United.

Being a fellow compatriot of the young talent, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes to make the Norwegian international a part of his young squad at the Theatre of Dreams. Further, the Red Devils are actively scouting the talent at present.

Arsenal, on the other hand, view Odegaard as a potential long-term replacement for Mesut Ozil.

The report adds that interested parties from England believe they could land Odegaard for as little as a £25 million and promise of regular first-team football in the Premier League. However, that would only be the case if Real do decide to let the player go on a permanent basis.
