The number of clubs reportedly after Martin Ødegaard is at eleventy billion.

Over the last few days, Martin Ødegaard has become the darling of the world media. The 15 year old Norwegian (Yeah, he was born in 1998. Yeesh. Do you feel old?) has basically been liked with every single big club under the sun recently, and everyone has been oohing and awing over this YouTube video.

Bayern have been keeping tabs on him for a while now, including a training stint with the club last winter.

Ødegaard plays for Strømsgodset in Norway and made his first team debut in April. Since then, he has made 11 appearances and scored three times in Norway's top flight. He drew rave reviews for his recent performance against Sandnes Ulf in the Tippeligaen when he scored a goal, had an assist, and drew a penalty.

Obviously, Ødegaard is far from a finished product, but he very well could be one to keep an eye on if his current rate of progression continues.
