According to various reports, Mohamed Elneny will spend the upcoming season on loan at Besiktas.
Unai Emery has made it clear that he is happy for the Egypt international to leave the club and it looks as though we’re ready to sanction a temporary deal to get his wages off the books for 12 months or so.
The 27-year-old signed a contract extension at the tail-end of Arsene Wenger’s time at the Emirates but has been marginalised under the Spaniard. Last season, the midfielder featured just eight times in the Premier League.
Despite a lack of game time, Galatasaray, Bordeaux and Roma have all been tipped to make a move for the player in recent months.
The transfer window closes on Monday for Turkish clubs. It’s likely that the terms of the deal will be finalised with Besiktas after the weekend.
It’s possible that both Nacho Monreal and Shkodran Mustafi could also leave in the coming days.
