ARSENAL fans appear to be convinced that captain Martin Odegaard is “working overtime” to try and get the “Norwegian Neymar” to sign for them.
Antonio Nusa, 18, currently plays in Belgium for Club Brugge but now he has announced himself on the international stage.
Last night, on just his second cap, he produced assists for Manchester City’s Erling Haaland and Odegaard to help fire Norway to a crucial 2-1 Euro qualifier victory over Georgia.
He now boasts one goal and three assists from his two outings for his country and already has been dubbed the “Norwegian Neymar” by some supporters in his homeland.
Chelsea were linked with a move for the starlet during the summer window and are believed to have had a bid rejected for him.
He also follows both Manchester United and the Gunners on Instagram – causing excitement amongst both fan bases.

But after a photo of him posing alongside skipper Odegaard and Haaland in the dressing-room after last night’s game was shared online, it is the Gooners that seem to believe their man is key to bringing him to the Emirates.
One fan replied to the snap: “Just know Arteta has Martin Odegaard working overtime seducing Antonio Nusa into choosing Arsenal.
“As a captain he’s gonna ban Haaland from chatting to him without his presence.”
And another added: “Go to work captain.”
