Besiktas made Arsenal a transfer bid for Mohamed Elneny, but the agreement is running out of time.
Mohamed Elneny of Arsenal has been a sporadic role in recent seasons, but he could be on his way to Turkey in a late deal.
If rumours are to be believed, Arsenal’s squad might be further decimated in the coming days, as Besiktas has made an offer for midfielder Mohamed Elneny.
After spending the 2019/20 season on loan, the Turkish side has shown a permanent interest in the Egyptian midfielder.
It would be a dazzling return for a player who is adored by the Kara Kartallar people after succeeding in the Turkish capital.
According to ntvspor, Besiktas officials would need to complete a deal with the Egyptian midfielder by Thursday night, as that is the deadline for UEFA squad submissions.
However, with Arsenal unable to acquire a replacement when the Premier League transfer market closed on Tuesday, a deal for the midfielder remains to be seen.
Last season, the Vodafone Park club won the league by a single goal, edging city rivals Galatasaray to the crown.
Both teams finished with 84 points, however Besiktas advanced to the Champions League group stages with a goal difference of +45 and Galatasaray with a goal difference of +44, whereas Galatasaray had to fight their way through the qualification stages.
Elneny is expected to be open to a move as a result of their participation in Europe’s main competition, as well as Arsenal’s failure to qualify for European football for the first time in 25 years.
Elneny joined Arsenal from Basel in January 2016 for a cost of £7.4 million during Arsene Wenger’s reign.
Elneny has struggled to maintain a starting spot in north London with the arrivals of other midfielders like as Granit Xhaka, Thomas Partey, and Dani Ceballos, to mention a few.
Under Mikel Arteta’s leadership, Arsenal have had their poorest start to a Premier League season ever.
The Gunners have failed to score in the Premier League this season, surrendering nine goals and losing all three games by at least two goals.
Granted, they’ve faced two of the league’s best teams in Manchester City and Chelsea, but it’s the style of their defeats that has fans fuming at Arteta.
Only seven goals have been scored by the three-time Premier League champions. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
