Premier League

Arsenal midfielder begin talks to join new club next year

Arsenal football club made quite a number of signings during the summer transfer window before it was shut in September.

The North London club are keen on improving their chances of competing with the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea in the 2021/2022 season and have signed several players including Martin Odegaard and Aaron Ramsdale to bolster their squad.

However, that has not quite worked out as expected so far as the Gunners are currently lying in 11th position on the Premier League table after racking up 10 points from their opening seven league matches.

Coupled with that, Arsenal could now be rocked with reports that experienced central midfielder Mohamed Elneny is keen on leaving the club when the transfer window opens.

The 29-year-old Egypt International, who joined Arsenal after leaving Basel in 2016 has been an important member of the first-team squad over the previous seasons.

The experienced midfielder was a rock in the Arsenal midfield last season where he made 43 appearances in all competitions and scored three goals.

Mohamed Elneny has however found it difficult to break into Arsenal's starting eleven this season and has only made two appearances in all competitions so far.

It is believed that the midfielder is disappointed with his lack of regular playing time at the club and according to reports from The Sun, he is interested in a move to join Turkish side Galatasaray.

The reports further claimed that the experienced midfielder has already started talks with the Turkish giants over a move as he nears the end of his contract ar Arsenal.

Do remember that Mohamed Elneny has less than a year left on his current contract at the Emirates Stadium and he could now leave the club on a free transfer to join Galatasaray when his contract runs out next summer.
