Mohamed ElNeny

Arsenal midfielder Mohamed ElNeny has left the club to join Turkish Super League giants Besiktas.

Mohamed ElNeny has joined the Turkish club on loan for the rest of the season with the option of making the deal a permanent one when the loan period expires.

Arsenal have already confirmed his exit from the club albeit on loan till next summer.

Mohamed ElNeny made 98 appearances for the Gunners since his £7m move from Swiss top flight side FC Basel in January 2016.

He joined Arsenal when legendary manager Arsene Wenger was in charge of the team.

Current Gunners boss Unai Emery had earlier told Mohamed ElNeny that he’s not in his future plans and it is not surprising that he leaves the club.

Alongside Shkodran Mustafi, the two players were informed that they won’t be part of the future plans at Arsenal.

Mohamed ElNeny made 18 appearances for Arsenal last season as the Gunners reached the Europa League final which they lost 4-1 to Premier League rivals Chelsea.

In stark contrast to his status at Arsenal, Mohamed ElNeny has always been a key player for the Egyptian national team whom he helped into the 2017 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) before they were beaten in the final by Cameroon.
