Arsenal playmaker, Martin Odegaard, has said the club wants to win the Champions League “within a couple of years”.

The Gunners have not played in Europe’s biggest club competition since 2017.

This season, they failed to qualify for any European competition entirely.

Odegaard, who has signed a permanent deal with Arsenal this summer, is however confident that they will begin their rise again.
