Arsenal set to confirm another sale as midfielder nears move to Turkey

Date published: Wednesday 7th August 2019 10:31

Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny is set to seal his departure from the club after making just five league starts last season.

Elneny has never been a regular at the Emirates Stadium since joining from Basel in 2015, and after being involved at the African Cup of Nations with Egypt, has not played a single minute in pre-season for Unai Emery.

According to Egyptian outlet KingFut, who cite Turkish source Futbol Arena, officials from Galatasaray are now in London to try and find an agreement to take Elneny to the Istanbul-based club.

The 27-year-old has also been linked with Super Lig rivals Besiktas and Fenerbahce, as well as French side Bordeaux, but Galatasaray – who can offer Champions League football after winning the Turkish top flight last season – now appear to be in pole position.

Elneny will follow Laurent Koscielny out the door at the Emirates, after the French defender finally completed his move to Bordeaux on Tuesday.
