Arsenal midfielder to get new Emirates chance

Mohamed Elneny is set to get another chance to have an Arsenal career after he was sent out on loan to Besiktas last season.

The Egyptian midfielder has impressed since his return from his loan move last season as he started Arsenal’s Community Shield game against Liverpool and their first Premier League game back against Fulham.

He wasn’t started in Arsenal’s last Premier League game against West Ham, but that doesn’t mean that he will be sold.

Rumours have claimed that his agent is in Turkey in a bid to get him a deal with yet another Turkish side.

However, Arsenal journalist, Chris Wheatley has come out to claim that the Egyptian, who started for Arsenal against Leicester City in the Carabao Cup, will not be sold this summer despite the rumours surrounding his future.

He claimed that the player has confided in those that are close to him that he will not be leaving the Emirates this summer. 

He Tweeted: “Mohamed Elneny starts against Leicester today. Those close to the player tell me he’s staying at Arsenal, contrary to recent reports in the Egyptian media. #AFC #LeiArs”

Arsenal is still being linked with a move for the likes of Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar, signing any of them will push Elneny further down the pecking order.

  1. There are a lot of matches to be played this season.. Injuries also is part of the game..
    We’ll need rotation occasionally and El neny is a very good squad player

  2. Elneny is a decent ,hard-working defensive midfielder who fits the functional role required under the 3-4-3 system deployed by Arteta where the main job of the two central operators is to win and recycle the ball.If we are unable to acquire Partey, and I doubt if we will, then there will be a need for Elneny this season.If we are able to bring in the Aouar, this may mean a switch to a more attacking set up for which Elneny is not particularly suited.That said I would not contemplate selling Elneny this season unless some Club was prepared to pay upwards of 10m.

  3. Well as it stands in order to sign 1 non-homegrown player we would need to offload or de-list 3 of the current homegrown quota.

    If we don’t sign anymore then it’s only 2 that have to go.

    Who would be your top 3 to go? In order?

    1. Torreira seems off, so that takes care of itself,
      2nd Ozil as Arteta seems content without him
      3rd Cancel Sokratis contract as has been discussed.
      I’d also mention with Mari coming back soon and Mustafi, Kola would also be on the chopping block. I struggle to find anything he does well lately; Tierney, AMN, and Saka better FB’s, Tierney, Mari, Mustafi, and now Gabriel as LCB are miles better than Kola.
      I don’t see him realistically competing for spots, and we have enough players to rotate at the back when everyone is fit.
      I feel that Kola is one of the few players that has actually REGRESSED under Arteta and is playing some of the worst football I’ve seen from him. Sorry to be harsh on your guy Sue, but he’s naughty Christmas list bad.
