It appears that Arsenal may have found a buyer for fringe player Mohamed Elneny and the best part is we will make a profit on the sale of the Egyptian, albeit a small one.
According to the latest transfer gossip, Turkish outfit Besiktas have inquired about the availability of 26-year-old, who cost us just £5 Million back in January 2016.
Elneny has dropped down the pecking order since the arrival of Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira, featuring in just four Premier League games this season, though he has played in five Europa League games as well.
But it is clear that manager Unai Emery prefers to go with the likes of Guendouzi and Torreira and there is no real future at the Emirates for Elneny as things stand right now.
We did nearly sell the midfielder in January to Roma, however, nothing came of that and a summer move now looks an almost certainty.
The Sun, citing Turkish outlet Fotospor are claiming that Besiktas have now requested info on Elneny, who will go relatively cheaply, though for more than what we actually paid for him, so at a guess, possibly £10 Million.
It is a shame it has not worked out for either the player or us, there were high hopes that Elneny would run the midfield but apart from the odd decent game he was never going to be our go-to man in the middle of the park.
If this deal does happen then all we can do is wish him the best in the future and thank him for his service.
