Here is your Arsenal morning digest on Monday, May 24.

Arteta makes Odegaard admission

Mikel Arteta is still unsure whether Arsenal will be able to sign Martin Odegaard either on a permanent basis or on another loan deal from Real Madrid.

Odegaard moved to the Gunners in January from Los Blancos on a short-term loan contract and has shown glimpses of his undeniable talent.

However, with the season now over, the Norway international’s future remains unclear and even Arteta does not know where he will be playing his football next term.

He said: “I don’t know. It’s not in our hands so I don’t know.”

What Arsenal fans shouted at Kroenke

Arsenal supporters made their feelings very clear to Josh Kroenke, with the American in attendance for Sunday’s win versus Brighton.

The Gunners owner was sat alongside chief executive Vinai Venkatesham and non-executive director Tim Lewis.

With a small percentage of the club’s supporters allowed inside the Emirates Stadium for the final match of the season, the 10,000 fans made sure their voices were heard.

Early in the game Gooners around the stadium could be heard chanting: “We hate Kroenke!”

Chants of “We want Kroenke Out” could also be heard booming around the stadium in the second half, while balloons which read “#KroenkeOut” were thrown on the pitch.

Willock opens up on Gunners future

Joe Willock was very coy when asked about his future after the Arsenal loanee scored yet another goal for Newcastle United.

Willock has now scored in seven Premier League games in a row as the Gunners midfielder continues to impress on Tyneside.

However, the 21-year-old is now due back to north London with his temporary contract over, but did not give much away on his future when quizzed about it.

He said: “We’ll see what the future holds.

“I’m blessed to have had the opportunity to play for this wonderful club and I’m happy it’s gone so well.”

Newcastle boss Steve Bruce has admitted he wants to keep hold of Willock, when asked about the Arsenal ace last week.

Bruce said: “We always said that it was a double-edged sword, and we have to respect that he is Arsenal’s player.

“We’ll see over the summer whether we can test their resolve, but as I said from day one, I’d like to thank Mikel and Steve Round on the football side of it because they were instrumental in getting me him and letting us borrow him for a few months.”
