Mohamed Elneny has been offered to Besiktas ahead of the summer transfer window…


 

Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny has reportedly been offered to Besiktas through a third-party agent as the Turkish giants look to add a holding midfielder to their squad, Fotospor reports.

Besiktas legend Atiba Hutchinson is set to retire at the end of the season at the age of 36 and with Gary Medel possibly heading for the exit door too, Elneny has become a target.

Elneny has seen his first-team opportunities limited this season following the summer arrivals of Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi.

The latter’s performances this season have put Elneny’s limitations into sharp focus, with the 19-year-old Frenchman producing mature displays for Unai Emery.

Elneny signed a new long-term contract 12 months ago, though many perceived it to be a case of preserving his market value rather than a show of faith by the club.

There were talks of a potential exit for the Egyptian in January with Leicester City linked with the midfielder on multiple occasions.

The report claims that Besiktas have asked for the potential package it would take to get Elneny out of Arsenal and one imagines that the club have informed the agent that former FC Basel man is available.

Elneny, throughout his four years at the club, has shown that he’s not really good enough at this level and moving him on this summer would be the correct decision.

Given the number of years remaining on his contract coupled with the modest £5million it took to bring him to Arsenal, hopefully, the club can make a profit on their investment.
