Arsenal to offer Mohamed Elneny new contract – Report
Arsenal are reportedly set to hold talks with Egypt international Mohamed Elneny over a new contract after his recent excellent performances.
The 25-year-old was linked with an exit from the club during the summer window, but after Francis Coquelin’s January departure, the Egyptian has had a bigger role to play.
And according to the Mirror, Arsenal want to hand the midfielder, who has two years left on his current contract, a new deal to keep him at the club.
He has earned many plaudits this season for his impressive performances and recently earned high praise from Egyptian legend Mohamed Aboutrika.
Elneny joined the Gunners in January 2016 from FC Basel, but has struggled to nail down a starting place, which prompted talk of a possible departure, with Leicester City showing interest in signing him.
However this season he has made 26 appearances for Arsenal, scoring once and assisting twice, winning the club’s Player of the Month award for January.
He played all of Arsenal’s games in the Europa League this season, helping them reach the quarter-finals, where they will face Russian side PFC CSKA Moscow.
The former Arab Contractors midfielder will have a fight on his hands to get more playing minutes, especially with Granit Xhaka, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, and Ainsley Maitland-Niles being in great form.
Arsenal are currently sixth in the Premier League with 48 points, 12 away from the fourth place and their next game will be against Stoke City on Sunday, April 1 at the Emirates.
