But they may need Zidane to go in order to keep hold of Odegaard, who has made it clear he won’t return if the Frenchman stays in charge.
Meanwhile, former Arsenal star Martin Keown has admitted he’s got reservations over Odegaard following the club’s 1-1 draw with Benfica on Thursday night.
The 54-year-old told BT Sport: “A lot of the problems for the Arsenal team is finding that spare player.
“It’s been Smith Rowe in the recent run. Odegaard has been given the luxury of playing in there.
“We’re still waiting to see, I think there’s a player under there but he’s not played much football for Real Madrid, maybe seven or eight games this season, maybe a bit short of fitness.
