Arsenal preparing a new deal for reborn midfielder

The Daily Mail claims that Arsenal is preparing to discuss a new deal with Mohamed Elneny.

The Egyptian has been a star-turn after he was declared surplus to requirements at the start of last season.

He was sent out on loan to Besiktas for the rest of that campaign and it seemed like his Arsenal career was over.

The delay in signing Thomas Partey or any other midfielder by the club this summer offered him the chance to play at the start of this season.

He has taken the chance well and he has now become a key part of the team, his performances also saw talk of him leaving on loan again ending.

In recognition of his newfound form, the club is looking to offer him an extension on his current deal, reports Mail Online.

Elneny signed his current Arsenal deal in 2018 and it is set to expire at the end of next season, according to Transfermarkt.

The Gunners still have time before they can get him on a new contract, however, if he enters the final year of his current deal and he is still on a fine run of form, they risk losing him to another top European side for cheap or nothing.

    Contract ends June 2022 so we have some time yet to decide, offer and get him to sign.

  2. Reggie says:

    Let him earn one and lets see how he performs over the season, not just yet.

  3. John Ibrahim says:

    he has about 1.5 years left in his contract

    and fans still think there are heaps of time

  4. David Rusa says:

    Elneny is not the first player to come back from a loan spell and improve his performance. Does anyone remember Alex Song? He had been declared surplus to requirements only to surprise everyone by his fine performances. If it wasn’t for his greed which forced him to join Barcelona he might have become an Arsenal legend! There is no excuse for waiting to grant Elneny a new contract. If he fails to live up to expectations we can always sell him.

      Song disrespected Steve Bould just after he had been made Wenger’s Number 2 while in a training camp in Austria.But it was kept hush-hush.There was no way he would have stayed.That was the real reason he was sold.Almost similar story to Guendouzi in UAE.Except that for Song,there was a willing buyer.

    Deserving of a new contract, seems to be reborn under Arteta. Arsenal should get him to sign a new deal asap.

  6. Gily says:

    Elneny has always been like this for the club; cool headed and always giving 100% each match plays. But for some strange reasons, a greater number of our fans simply couldn’t see anything good in him and were always on his neck.
    He deserves that new contract. No need to rush it as he’s humble enough to accept it anytime.

  7. Mish says:

    One of the most gentle players around, zero ego and loves playing for the team.

    However lets wait till end of season as players have a way of playing their heart out for new deal then goes awol after.
