Egypt international Mohamed El-Nenny has successfully passed his medical at Arsenal Football Club, KingFut can confirm.

As revealed by KingFut days ago, the 23-year-old was due to undergo his Arsenal medical in Paris last Tuesday.

The box-to-box midfielder begun his tests for the Gunners late afternoon on Tuesday and came through them with no qualms about his health or fitness.

El-Nenny is now set to sign his Arsenal contract in Zürich, a deal which is believed will cost the North London club in the region of £7 million.

The FC Basel player will sign a four-and-a-half year deal with the English Premier League title contenders, subject to receiving his work permit.

Although there are issues, receiving a work permit should not be an problem for as he has participated in 15 of the Egypt national team’s 17 matches over the past two years (more than the minimum requirement of 75%). Arsenal will first have to go through an appeal process, though, as the regulations for being granted a work permit have changed this year, requiring the player’s country to be ranked by FIFA among the top 50 nations – rather than the top 70 – while the Pharaohs are currently ranked 57th in the world.

It is worth mentioning that the Egyptian was among the 25-man shortlist for the CAF Player of the Year award in 2014.
