Martin Odegaard: Arsenal are in early contract negotiations with the captain.
Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard is in advanced contract talks, while important defender Ben White is due to begin formal contract negotiations.
Under Mikel Arteta, Martin Odegaard and White have become as vital players, and the club is looking to ensure their long-term futures.
Odegaard’s current contract expires at the end of next season, and the Gunners have prioritized the midfielder’s future.
A four-year contract is reportedly in advanced discussions between Arsenal and Odegaard’s representatives.
Odegaard’s income, which is currently about £120,000 per week, will climb dramatically.
The specifics of the new conditions for the Norway International have not yet been available. Nevertheless, according to reports, confidence in a positive conclusion is growing.
The Gunners also intend to start talks with White on new terms.
White, signed from Brighton for £50 million in 2021, has quickly established himself as a crucial player for the Gunners.
His current deal has just under three years left on it, but Arsenal believes the versatile defender should be rewarded.
Negotiations on new deals are anticipated to begin in the coming weeks as Arsenal seeks to secure the services of two of their most essential players.
