The agent of Mohamed Elneny is in Turkey to try to broker a deal for the Egyptian midfielder who spent last season on loan at Besiktas.
The Egyptian returned from his loan spell to play for Arsenal as they beat Liverpool to win the Community Shield as well as beat Fulham in their first Premier League game of the season.
The Gunners didn’t start him in the last Premier League game against West Ham United, causing rumours about his future to spread.
The Egyptian media outlet, Extra Sport is now reporting that the midfielder’s agent is currently in Turkey.
The report claims that his agent has even held talks with Galatasaray and Trabzonspor about a transfer for him.
After his fine season with Besiktas, it is not surprising that several Turkish sides want him to join them for this season.
It remains unclear if he will be part of Mikel Arteta’s plans for the coming season after a fine start to the campaign.
The Gunners have brought in Dani Ceballos who replaced him in the starting XI against West Ham.
They are also still linked with a move for Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar, signing any of these players will push Mohamed Elneny further down the pecking order.
With his recent displays this guy is still very much useful for us as a back up when we get partey and aourer
From the recent games,he’s the best Dm at Arsenal presently.
Thank you for this comment! I really don’t understand why people think Elneny is a fringe player. Without doubt he is the best DM at Arsenal and his presence makes Arsenal very balanced and composed. He never played a misplaced pass whereas Cebalos continues to show how erratic he can be with his passes. It was evident again when he came on as a sub in the Leicester game. In the absence of Partey, if Arteta wants progress then he should stick with Elneny!
Against liverpool Elneni must start if we want to win
Lucas Torreira to Atletico Madrid is set.
Torreira will go on a season long loan to Atletico with an obligation to buy. It’s an €8.1m loan, with a final obligated fee of around €25m.
yess, great news. So many clubs only want loans of our players instead of buys. I’ll take obligation to buy as a Win.
Eddie I just hope we getting Partey in return.
We or not getting anyone else this window we or finished
he’s turned out to be a fine squad player. If we can get a good fee to help towards Partey and Aouar, then it’s goodbye tho without a second thought.
I think if we are selling Torreira, Guendouzi and Ozil or any of our current midfield players, we should have him in our team. His current performance are fabulous!
When we need him to cover in the back, he is there, helping the defense and we try to play forward plays we should have Ceballos – who is better in creating chances – he can still cover in the back while Tierney or Bellerin can go forward to create chances. And if we can remember in Fulham’s game, he was able to make some good plays for our forward players.
Compared to Xhaka, Elneny so far showing what he can do, he is a fighter not like Guendouzi at least!
