Arsenal have reportedly made an approach to sign Real Madrid midfielder Martin Odegaard, who is understood to have requested to leave the LaLiga giants.
The Norwegian impressed on loan at Real Sociedad last season, which convinced Los Blancos to recall the player earlier than expected.
Having made only three starts in LaLiga this season, however, the 22-year-old has requested that the club let him this month, as per Marca.
Sky Sports have now reported that the Spanish giants are considering an offer from the Gunners for the player, but they do have competition from other teams.
Dani Ceballos, who is at Arsenal on loan from Real, has urged his Los Blancos teammate to leave for regular minutes.
"Young players need to play regularly," Ceballos told EFE.
"At Real Madrid, I needed to know that I would have equal opportunities. I was obsessed with playing again.
"I wasn't getting minutes, but I realised it was best to work and reverse the situation and be important (with another club).
"If I do this (go on loan), I'll play again. It couldn't have been any clearer.
"I can tell you what happened to me at Madrid. I don't know exactly what will happen with Martin Odegaard, but it is obvious that any player who wants to succeed at Madrid is going to grab the opportunity he has."
