Former Arsenal defender, William Gallas, believes captain Martin Odegaard is the Premier League’s second-best player behind Manchester City’s Erling Haaland this season.
Odegaard has been a key part of Arsenal’s squad under Mikel Arteta so far this season while Haaland has been on top form for Pep Guardiola’s side.
“Martin Odegaard has shown all his skills and qualities,” Gallas told Genting Casino.
“He is a playmaker. I don’t know if he’s the best player in the Premier League. I think the best player at the moment is Halaand.
“What Odegaard is doing with Arsenal is just magnificent. He can see everything quickly before any of the other players. That is why sometimes he can play with one touch and delivers a good ball into space.
“It also is very good to see players like him. He’s just below Haaland as the best Premier League player right now.”
