According to a recent report by the Sun, Arsenal are prepared to let Mohamed Elneny depart the North London club when the transfer window reopens in January. It is understood that the Gunners are willing to sell him for a fee in the region of £15m with Leicester City eager to offer him an escape route out of his nightmare at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners have been highly impressive going forward, but their central midfield has looked a bit shaky at times, especially during the early parts of this campaign. It is evident from their recent success that Lucas Torreira is arguably the best holding midfielder at the club while the likes of Matteo Guendouzi and Granit Xhaka are battling it out for a spot in Unai Emery’s starting XI every week. However, one player who has often been overlooked by the Arsenal boss this season has been Mohamed Elneny.
The Egyptian international has been plagued with injuries this season having made just four appearances so far across all competitions. The 26-year-old is in dire need of more game time if he wants to reignite his career in English football so a move away from North London in January might help him get his career back on track.
Elneny is currently going through the peak years of his playing career and needs to secure regular first-team opportunities if he wants to prove his worth at the highest level.
What Does Elneny Offer To Emery’s Side?
The Egyptian midfielder is a willing worker who primarily plays as a deep-lying holding midfielder. He can create plays for his teammates but is more well-known for his defensive ‘dirty work’ of breaking down attacking moves at the centre of the park. One could even argue that the Mahalla born player is not too far behind either Guendouzi or Xhaka as he is more physically imposing and can distribute the ball well in midfield.
The fact that Elneny has featured in just four matches for the North London giants this season does not bode well for his career. Maybe its time for him to move on for a fresh challenge someplace else while Arsenal can use the money generated from his sale to strengthen other areas of their squad.
