Finally, there is some good news for Arsenal fans when it comes to offloading some of the deadwood in the squad.
It is not Mustafi, well not yet, so it is not the very best we could have hoped for but Mohamed Elneny, who comes a very good second in terms of players that should be offloaded.
And it gets even better.
The club apparently interested in him is West Ham United. It would have been Christmas if it was Tottenham but alas, it is the poor Hammers.
According to reports in Egypt, West Ham are looking to sign the 27-year-old in a deal worth 10 Million Euros, however, the report claims that may not be enough to tempt Arsenal to sell.
Are they mad? Of course, that is ample money but fair enough, if the club thinks they can squeeze a bit more out of West Ham then it is worth a go I suppose.
I cannot think of many more outgoing transfers that would please me so much and the fact that it is a London rival that wants to sign Elneny, all the better.
If this deal does materialise then it would be good news for the player himself, he has no future at Arsenal, he must surely know that and at a club like West Ham, he would certainly get more game time.
Fingers crossed this one actually happens.
