Arsenal surprisingly decide to reject midfielder transfer bid

Posted by

Arsenal have reportedly decided to reject a transfer bid from Galatasaray for midfielder Mohamed Elneny.

The Egypt international hasn’t played regularly for the Gunners in recent times, and will also be out of contract at the end of the season, making him a free agent.

All this points towards Arsenal surely needing to cash in on Elneny now, but Sky Sports claim he’s still in Mikel Arteta’s plans, so the club turned down a late offer that would have seen him move to Turkey before today’s deadline.

Elneny did some have strong performances in the Arsenal first-team last season, and it could still be that he’ll work his way back into the starting line up at some point.

Mohamed Elneny has been a decent squad player for Arsenal

Still, most Gooners will surely feel their club needs to be aiming a bit higher than making a player like Elneny a key member of their squad.

Beggars can’t be choosers, however, and Arsenal are short of options in the middle of the park as Thomas Partey has had numerous injury problems in his time at the Emirates Stadium.

    1. Non sense over ans over, let Willock go, never play AMN as DM, bring back Elneny from Loan to bench AMN,. Guedouzi enjoying football in Marseille…

      Arteta & Edu are causing this total mess, have ni clue; there for money and game…

  2. @silentStan,
    am sorry but i disagree with you.
    It would be a major loss to keep El Neny simply because of the next 1-3 games and pay him wages for the year in exchange for the few games he will get this season. To make matters worse, we lose him for free at the end of the season.

    In my view, our management would have finally proven they know nothing if they dont cash in on him before Turkish transfer deadline this evening!!!
