2. Martin Odegaard (winner)

The primary corner and set-piece taker for Arsenal is their captain, Martin Odegaard. Although the likes of Bukayo Saka and Declan Rice have also had their say in set pieces, I will pinpoint Martin Odegaard because I think he would benefit the most, even in open play.

For Martin Odegaard to excel in his creativity, he doesn't necessarily *need* tall players but it does go a long way. For his lofted balls and crosses to be met, he would greatly appreciate having the man-mountain Alexander Isak to pick out.

Furthermore, Odegaard is a free-roaming player, so is Alexander Isak. Rather than conflicting, the two will see a lot of each other and they could greatly benefit from one another. After all, the more differing attacking options Odegaard has to look for, the better.
