'I'd Rather Have Martin Odegaard Than Bruno Fernandes With The Way Arsenal Are Playing'

Darren Bent says he'd rather have Martin Odegaard THAN Bruno Fernandes with the way Arsenal are playing, and even Raphael van der Vaart over the Manchester United star.

Fernandes is set to be rewarded for his impressive performances for Man United with a new bumper deal, which will see him double his wages.

But former Premier League striker Bent is still unconvinced with the Portuguese ace, saying he's waiting for him to turn up in big games.

On talkSPORT, he explained: "Of course, he's been a very good player for Manchester United, but I'm still waiting for him to turn up when they really need him in those big games."

Andy Goldstein weighed in by asking Bent if he'd have Fernandes at Arsenal: "But there's no doubt that Bruno Fernandes is an excellent player and there's no doubt that him signing a five-year deal at Man United is fantastic news.

"You'd have him in a heartbeat Arsenal."

Bent, however, refused that claim and brought up ex-Tottenham hero Van der Vaart.

He replied: "No, I wouldn't - I'll tell you that right now. No, I would not.

"Right now, I'd rather have Martin Odegaard with the way Arsenal are playing.

"I'm taking Odegaard in that role for Arsenal. He's perfect for what Arsenal are doing right now. I wouldn't swap him for Bruno."

Bent added: "Van der Vaart at Spurs. He was better than Bruno."

Goldstein hit back: "Oh, shut up! He was not better than Bruno Fernandes. What are you talking about?

"He was a great player but he was nowhere Bruno. The impact he had, the goals and assists in his first season..."

Bent didn't back down as he sided with Van der Vaart over Fernandes: "I'm going Van de Vaart. I'm saying he was better."
