CHELSEA star Martin Odegaard has hailed Norwegian wonderkid Antonio Nusa as an exciting player.
Nusa is a lad that has been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent months, as there were reports that we made an offer to try and get a deal done.
However – a move to Stamford Bridge never worked out as the club didnt want to meet the asking price of Nusa, which has opened up the door for other clubs to keep an eye on the young man ahead of the January window.
Nusa put on a masterful display for his country during their Euro 2024 qualifier against Georgia. The 18-year-old set up goals for both Manchester City talisman Erling Haaland and Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard during the 2-1 victory.
The clash marked just his second appearance for Norway at senior level and yet he now already boasts a tally that reads one goal and three assists.
And amid all the speculation – Arsenal captain Odegaard has opened up and revealed that Nusa is a very exciting player that has a big future ahead of him in the game of Football.
“Fantastic! He is an incredibly exciting player,” Odegaard told TV2. “You see it, everything he gets the ball, it’s exciting. He is still young and will get even better. It was cool to see him. He deserved to get the chance that he takes it to such an extent. Incredibly cool!
“He must continue as he has done. Work hard, be humble. He’s a nice boy. Very calm and nice type. It’s going to be just fine. He just has to enjoy the football and continue to deliver as he does. Then it will be good.”
