These two players operate in the same sort of position on the football pitch, so with Arsenal transfer rumours hitting the football media about our Egyptian international central midfielder Mohamed Elneny and the Sporting Lisbon star William Carvalhe I wonder if it could mean that the Gunners are planning to replace one with the other.
Arsenal have been linked with Carvalho many times in the past, in fact it is almost a common theme of every transfer window in recent years, but you could say the same thing of Alexandre Lacazette and Arsene Wenger made sure he got the striker this summer.
Perhaps the disappointing Premier League campaign of last season has sharpened up our manager and according to The Mirror he is set to put in a bid for the powerful 25-year old Portugal international. As we know, the Arsenal squad is already big and so it may be no coincidence that Metro is reporting that officials from the Turkish club Galatasaray are in talks over the transfer of Elneny.
For me this would be a good move for Arsenal because although Elneny is a decent and versatile player I think the extra power of Carvalho would be a big asset for Arsenal in the quest for EPL glory. Would you like to see these two Arsenal transfer deals done?
