The latest piece of Arsenal transfer gossip will be music to the ears of most Arsenal fans and not because of a potential recruit but because of a player that may finally be on his way out of the Emirates.
According to reports in France, Bordeaux is preparing to table a bid for midfield flop Mohamed Elneny.
Elneny has been nothing but a huge disappointment since he joined us from Swiss club, Basel, back in 2016 and even though he signed a new contract in March he has been unable to make any sort of impact, well, a positive one anyway.
Apparently, the new Bordeaux manager Paulo Sousa wants to be reunited with the Egyptian, who he coached when they were both together at Basel and must feel he is more capable of getting more from the 26-year-old than what Unai Emery has been able to do.
Elneny has become nothing more than a fringe player this season and there is a very good reason for that, his contributions when he has been given an opportunity have been woeful, and it has to be the case that it is better for both us and him that he moves on.
This news on top of the interest in Shkodran Mustafi from AC Milan, which we covered here, just about caps off a brilliant 24 hours for us, which makes a change from the misery of the last few weeks.
Fingers crossed this piece of transfer gossip is true.
