Arsenal weighing up move for Mohamed Elneny


Arsenal have been badly hit with injuries this season (no surprise there) and it may force Arsene Wenger to delve into the transfer market in January.

The midfield needs a special attention, as several key players – Jack Wilshere, Thomas Rosicky, Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin – are set to remain on the sidelines for a longer period.

As it stands, Arsenal are looking to sign a midfielder in the January window, and Wenger is plotting a move for FC Basel’s 23-year-old defensive midfielder Mohamed Elneny.

According to reports from The Mirror, the Gunners have been monitoring his progress for quite sometime now, are keen to make a move for the Egyptian midfielder, who would cost around £5m.

Southampton’s Victor Wanyama has been Arsenal’s first choice target, but the Gunners are reluctant to meet his £25m valuation.

Recently, John Cross of The Mirror reported that Arsenal could be interested in singing PSG’s highly talented young midfielder Adrien Rabiot, although he could be a loan solution until the summer.
