Odegaard: I tried everything to convince Haaland about Arsenal move


New Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard admits he tried everything to convince Norway teammate Erling Haaland to join him at the Gunners.

The former Borussia Dortmund striker eventually signed for Manchester City this summer.

Odegaard and Haaland team up at international level and there was often talk of the former trying to lure his compatriot to north London, albeit he wasn't able to do so.

He told FourFourTwo, ahead of the All or Nothing release: “We speak every day, we have a group on Snapchat with some of the guys in the national team. He's a great guy, great player. Unfortunately for us, he'll be a great player for them and score some goals! I wish him all the best… except for when we play them. Yeah, I tried [to convince him to join Arsenal]!

“When Arsenal fans were posting pictures of him and me in the shirt, I sent it to him, you know? I was working but unfortunately, it wasn't enough! He just laughed. He's a funny guy."
