According to a report from Norwegian outlet VG, new Arsenal signing Martin Odegaard rejected Tottenham’s approach before agreeing on a move to the Emirates.

On Wednesday, Arsenal confirmed that they had signed Odegaard on loan from Real Madrid until the end of the season.

Reports indicate that Spurs are also in the market for an attacking midfielder to replace Dele Alli, with the England international potentially joining Paris Saint-Germain on loan.

However, Jose Mourinho has stated that he expects Alli to stay and does not think that there will be any new arrivals before the transfer window closes.

The Athletic’s David Ornstein said on the Ornstein & Chapman Podcast that Spurs were one of the clubs Odegaard was offered to this month.

VG now claim that Mourinho’s men were interested in signing the 22-year-old but he decided to reject Tottenham’s approach in favour of a move to Arsenal after speaking with Mikel Arteta.
