Odegaard, who signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal after joining from Real Madrid in 2021, just signed a new long-term contract with the Premier League North London team.

“It’s great news that Arsenal has signed Odegaard to a new contract,” Gallas said to Genting Casino.

“He is a playmaker, and he is the player in this Arsenal team who is expected to break open tight matches with his skill.”

“In the Everton game, he produced a magnificent pass for Saka, who then set up Trossard.”

“He is a crucial player for Arsenal.” Arsenal are not the same without him in the lineup.

“I believe Odegaard is comparable to Dennis Bergkamp. He’s not quite on Bergkamp’s level yet – Bergkamp was an incredible Arsenal player – but Odegaard reminds me of him. Odegaard’s quality can make a difference.”
