Liverpool failed with an approach to secure the services of Real Madrid forward Martin Odegaard last summer, according to his former manager Leonid Slutsky.
Odegaard has spent the 2018-19 season playing under Slutsky at Dutch outfits Vitesse, where the Norwegian forward has managed to found back of the net 11 times and creating a further 12 in 39 games across all competitions.
The 21-year-old has since joined La Liga outfits Real Sociedad on loan for the next two campaigns, however, Slutsky revealed that the Merseyside Reds and Ajax were both interested in luring the Norwegian away from Santiago Bernabeu.
“His time at Vitesse has been very important. He became one of the best players in the Eredivisie and had many offers in his pocket. Not only from Real Sociedad, but also from Liverpool and Ajax,” Slutsky told to Mirror.
“It is an honour to have had a share in Martin’s growth as a footballer.
“It’s clear that Real Madrid will decide his future with him by the end of the season. Could he stay with Real Sociedad for another year? I don’t know. I’m sure that Odegaard is ready to play for Real Madrid now.”
Odegaard has played 28 games for Real Sociedad so far this campaign, founding back of the net seven times and creating eight.

PSG forward Kylian Mbappe needs to leave France to become a better footballer and prove himself on the biggest stage. That’s according to Real Madrid star Luka Modric, who has won four Champions League titles as part of one of the best Los Blancos sides ever.
France international is being linked with a move away from Paris in the future, with Liverpool and Real Madrid tipped to land the star. Kylian has just ever played in his home country, where he helped Monaco win the Ligue 1 title, before switching to PSG in 2017 and becoming a big reason why they have dominated ever since.
However, to be considered as a modern great, it’s thought that he would probably need to join one of Europe’s more competitive league, such as the PL or La Liga. And Luka, who has played in both with Tottenham and Real Madrid respectively, insists that the World Cup winner would benefit from trying out a new league.
“Mbappé has everything to dominate the scene,” Croatian superstar said. “But I think that to leap in quality, he needs to go to a championship in which his team does not win so easily. I would like to end my career at Real, but it will also depend on the club.”
Speaking about his career, Modric said he would like to finish his career at the Bernabeu, and revealed that he would like to go into coaching when he hangs up his boots, potentially with the Croatian national team. “I’m sure I can play at a high level for two more years, then we’ll see,” Luka added.

Liverpool have broken the record for claiming the Premier League title with more games left than any team has ever done before.
The first top-flight trophy in 30 years is making it's way back to Anfield after Manchester City failed to beat Chelsea on Thursday night.
Football restarted on June 17 having been suspended from March 14 due to the coronavirus pandemic so the Reds were made to wait a little longer but now celebrations have started.
As Jurgen Klopp's side watched on as their title win was confirmed, fans will wonder when they will finally get their hands on the silverware.
The Premier League have confirmed Liverpool will be awarded the trophy at their final home game of the season against Chelsea, the side that helped them clinch the title, which is provisionally scheduled for July 18.
What TV channel it will be broadcast on is yet to be confirmed.
Preparations will now begin to organise a title celebration for the Reds after plans and Liverpool Council also confirmed they will aim to organise a city-wide parade when it is safe to do so after COVID-19. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
And though Liverpool have pipped Manchester United and Manchester City's previous record of claiming the title with more games left than anyone else, when those two teams did it in the 2000/01 and 2017/18 seasons respectively with five games remaining, the Reds still have another record to aim for - and that is to eclipse City's record 100-point total.
The European champions currently sit on 86/89 points with seven/six games to go and need six/five more wins to claim that accolade too.

Arsenal might become the latest English team to sign a player from RB Salzburg if a recent report is true.
Liverpool has enjoyed the Austrian side’s developed talents in recent seasons with Sadio Mane and Naby Keita all coming through the ranks at the Austrian Bundesliga outfit.
Reputable journalist, Manu Lonjon is reporting that Arsenal is one of the teams looking to sign Dominik Szoboszlai as the Hungarian continues to develop well in Salzburg.
Szoboszlai is only 19, but he has already won two Austrian league titles and two Austrian cups.
He has helped Salzburg become one of most exciting teams in Europe in recent years and they even competed in the Champions League group stage this season.
In 24 league games for them this season, he has scored 7 goals and provided 12 assists.
Lonjon claims that PSG has inquired about signing him from the Austrians and they are not the only team looking to sign him.
The journalist initially tweeted, per the Sun: “PSG asked about Dominik Szoboszlai (RB Salzburg). Profile quite similar to that of Milinkovic-Savic. Other big clubs on it. The player’s entourage was probed and not insensitive to interest. Cost 25 / 30M.”
When pressed further on Arsenal’s interest in the player, he tweeted this
Translated that reads “Arsenal and AC Milan well advanced.”
It has to be said that this is indeed very interesting news.
