Arsenal submit contract offer for Calhanoglu 

Arsenal are interested in signing the AC Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu.

The Turkish playmaker has been a quality servant for the Italian club but he is out of contract in the summer and the Gunners are looking to snap him up on a free transfer.

Apparently, AC Milan want to keep the player at the club and they have offered him a new deal but the player is not impressed with the offer.

It is believed that Calhanoglu wants £105,000 a week but AC Milan are only willing to offer £83,000 a week to the player.

Reports claim that Arsenal have already submitted a contract offer to the player’s agent.

Chelsea are thought to be keen on the midfielder as well and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.

Odegaard keen on Liverpool move

Meanwhile the Gunners could be beaten in the race to sign Martin Odegaard this summer.

According to reports, the midfielder is tempted to join Liverpool after talks with Jurgen Klopp.

Real Madrid are prepared to cash in on the playmaker in order to raise transfer funds and it will be interesting to see if the Reds can secure his services.

Odegaard has been quite impressive for the Gunners since joining the club on loan during the January transfer window.

The Norwegian was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool a few years ago but he ended up joining Real Madrid instead.

Arsenal have been linked with a permanent move as well but the Reds have more pulling power right now and the Gunners might have to offer big money to win the transfer chase.
