Mohamed Elneny returned to Arsenal from a loan stint with Besiktas last season and looked to have regained the trust of Mikel Arteta at the start of this campaign.
The club decided to keep him as a part of their squad for the new season and he has been a useful alternative in midfield.
The arrival of Thomas Partey has increased the competition for a place in the Arsenal midfield and Elneny hasn’t seen much action.
Regardless of his lack of consistent action at the Emirates, his agent has just revealed that the midfielder is in line to earn a new Arsenal deal.
The Gunners are rebuilding their team under Arteta and they might replace some of their current players in the summer.
Elneny is one player who should go, but his agent said in a recent interview that they are discussing terms of a new deal with the Gunners.
“Leaving to the Turkish league is among the rumours surrounding Mohamed Elneny,” Alan Nazmy admitted (Yallakora).
“The player has a season left on his contract, and we are currently working on renewing the contract.
“The player’s ambitions are to continue (with Arsenal), after earning the confidence of his coach Arteta. This is his first choice.”
