Mohamed El-Nenny
Egypt international Mohamed El-Nenny is set to travel to London on the 13th of January to complete his move to Arsenal, KingFut can confirm.

As previously reported on, the player had agreed terms and signed his Arsenal contract after passing his medical in Paris.

Both the club and El-Nenny have put pen-to-paper and the 23-year-old Egyptian midfielder is now an Arsenal player, subject to arrival in London from Paris and an official unveiling.

The former Arab Contractors player is joining from  on a four-and-a-half year deal in a bid to help the Gunners win their first English Premier League title in twelve years.


KingFut can also confirm El-Nenny did not face any problems obtaining a work permit, and the delay was over visa issues.

It is worth noting that the Egyptian was among the 25-man shortlist for the CAF Player of the Year award in 2014, and has scored six goals in 28 appearances for Swiss champions FC Basel this season.

    Why do all Arsenal transfers run for longer than a damn tv mini series, other teams sign two or three players in the time it takes us to get one over the line.

      two explanations: 1. Arsenal are really slow. 2. The media covers Arsenal so well that makes you feel it has been so long. Remember Ozil’s case was very short.

        hahaha ‘arsenal are really slow’ says someone who has no idea how the club does its transfers, let alone the complications of signing players like Elneny. Why would arsenal slow their own signing when the manager needs cover
