Turkish giants looking to agree loan deal with Arsenal for midfielder

Mohamed Elneny might spend another season in Turkey with Besiktas if the Turkish side has their way.

The Egyptian was shipped out on-loan to the Istanbul side at the start of this season after Unai Emery made him surplus to requirements.

He has enjoyed a fine season with them and he has even become one of the crowd favourites.

The Gunners recently revealed their jersey for next season and one notable change was that William Saliba has been handed the midfielder’s number 4 shirt, according to the Standard.

This seems to suggest that he has no future at the Emirates, but the same Standard report claims that he has been given the number 25 shirt at the Emirates.

Turkish Football is reporting that Besiktas is looking to bring him back next season for yet another season-long loan.

The midfielder has had issues with the club over unpaid wages this season and the report claims that the club is looking to resolve every issue with him so that they can get him interested in another loan deal.

The Egyptian has provided three assists in 35 appearances in all competitions for them this season.

Since joining Arsenal in 2015, he has played 89 times for the Gunners, scoring on two occasions.

    He’s a Turkish champion, I guess u v never bn champion In ur life, he was also a multiple swizz champion, till arsenal get rid of toxic fans like u they will continue to struggle, the last time I checked I can’t remember anything u r good at apart from abusing fellow fans and players, I used to think the older the wiser, buh ur case is different, the older the more miserable, elneny was brought in as a squad player, and he has never failed to fill in when needed, he’s a guy that hardly moans when not used because he’s a complete gentleman and a real professional, toxic people are the most terrible people in life, I wish old age can teach u humility in this ur miserable life!

      I have been saying the same, thank you.
      When he first arrived Arsenal, he was better than Flamini and Arteta who were at the end of their career.

      Now, he was better than Xhaka at times but I admit now Xhaka is playing very well and is much better. He is almost equal to Matteo G. but he needs to find form.

      With that said, I am not a fan of him, Arsenal needs better players but he can do a job.

      Strengths:
      – Always available for teammates
      – rarely miss a pass
      – high stamina
      – attacking skills like long range shots and passes are really okay when in form but not equal to Dani or Xhaka.
      – very good when you press high.

      Weaknesses:
      – I ve not watched him Besiktas but his tackling skill in Egypt is not very good. When he plays as holding defensive-mid
      – rarely take risks in passing and shooting
      – he is not a foward dribbler

      He has a potential of improvement but cant see him breaking into Arsenal. I would sell him, he can improve many clubs.

    He reminded me of what he was capable of in the Palace game… not for me, please sell him…

    Well, we said the same for Francis Coqulin, after his loan spell he was really good for us, along with Carzola, we were looking good, until some genius decided to get Lucas and ship him out. Elneny is a squad player, but we have the tendency to recycle the ball among ourselves, ensuring someone bucks under pressure and concedes the ball to our opponents. We have seen this n number of times with Kolasinac, Luiz, Mustafi, Socrates, Xhaka. These are not the players for tiki taka, for these players the game has to be forward, one touch. Elneny falls into this category. If he were that poor, Bestikas would not want a loan. Mkhitaryan too is doing well in Rome. So there is something wrong in our coaching or style of play with reference to the players we have. To be a top club challenging for the title, we need better players.If we are cup team, then these players are capable of doing the job. The ownership has to decide what is their priority.
    Finally for some 2019-20 stats, to state who is the most useless to us at the moment.
    Mkhitaryan 20 games, 9 goals, 4 assist
    Elneny 26 games, 3 assist (for a deep midfield player)
    Ozil 18 games, 1 goal, 2 assists

      Those 3players are not significant in our current system and will not in the future, we can do better, am happy for Elnely and Miki taking the bold step to rediscover their career, I hope Ozil could do same but it seems he isn’t interested in football anymore, what a shame, what a waste of talent.
