Arsenal midfielder Mohamed ElNeny is on the verge of joining Turkish Super League giants Besiktas according to the latest reports emanating from the British media.
The Egyptian international has not been involved with the Arsenal team this season and he has been told by manager Unai Emery to look for a new club.
According to popular media outlet Goal, Turkish giants Galatasaray were strongly linked with Mohamed ElNeny but rivals Besiktas have moved in to sign the player on loan and they will be paying the majority of his £50,000 weekly salary at Arsenal.
Mohamed ElNeny has three years left on his current deal with the Gunners who wanted to sell the player outrightly but didn’t receive any permanent transfer offer for him.
European sides were only willing to sign the 27-year-old on loan.
Mohamed ElNeny has never found much favour with current Arsenal boss Unai Emery since he assumed the role last year.
He was the fourth choice central midfielder at Arsenal under Unai Emery last season behind the likes of Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka.
Mohamed ElNeny made 18 appearances for the Gunners in all competitions last season with just seven of those coming in the Premier League.
