Real Madrid playmaker Martin Odegaard has reportedly completed his medical at Arsenal ahead of a loan move to the Emirates Stadium.
The Norway international was given the green light to head out on loan after struggling for game time under Zinedine Zidane, and Arsenal appear to have won the race for his signature.
Odegaard was linked with a temporary switch back to Real Sociedad in the January transfer window, but Sky Sports News now reports that he has completed a medical at Arsenal ahead of a six-month loan deal.
It is understood that the deal does not include an option to buy as Real Madrid chiefs are convinced that he will eventually come good in the Spanish capital.
The 22-year-old's arrival in North London will supposedly be announced within the next 24 hours, with Arsenal due to take on Southampton in the Premier League on Tuesday evening.
The Gunners have been on the lookout for a new creative player after terminating the contract of Mesut Ozil - who has now joined Fenerbahce - and Mikel Arteta's side are supposedly still interested in a summer deal for Norwich City's Emiliano Buendia.
