Good morning to Gunners fans
Arsenal legend Paul Merson has revealed he’s had a u-turn on Martin Odegaard as a player.
The former Gunner revealed he didn’t think much of the Norwegian until his recent burst of form.
But now, Merse understands the playmaker’s qualities.
“He has come to the party now. He is a very good footballer,” he said.
“I didn’t really see that at the start of his time with Arsenal but I see it now.
“He’s a player that sees things very quickly and he has great movement. He is a quality player.”
Thomas Partey is a transfer target for Juventus, according to reports.
The Ghanaian, who cost the Gunners £50million in 2020, has had his ups and downs at the Emirates.
And now the Serie A giants could test the Gunners’ resolve with a bid for the midfielder, according to Turin publication Tuttosport.
While Ray Parlour has tipped his old club to make a move for Man Utd’s out-of-favour striker Marcus Rashford.
“Marcus Rashford is going through a bit of a bad spell but he’s a top player,” he said on talkSPORT.
“I am sure lots of clubs will be enquiring about Marcus Rashford if he was available in the summer. Certainly Arsenal, I would love him to come to Arsenal.
“That’s the position Arsenal need to look at this summer, it’s vital for the club. I don’t think he would be because United would be mad to sell him. But if he is available then Arsenal would definitely be interested.”
