Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Elneny is in line for a new deal at the club, according to his agent
Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny is in talks to sign a new contract at the Emirates, according to his agent.
The Egyptian is currently on international duty, and scored in their African Nations Cup qualifying 4-0 win over Comoros on Monday, a win that confirmed their qualification for next January’s tournament.
The goal continued the 28-year-old’s impressive season, having forced himself back into Mikel Arteta’s plans after it looked likely that he would leave the club last summer when he returned from a loan spell at Besiktas.
And now, his form seems to persuaded the Gunners to award him a new deal in London, according to Alan Nazmy, his agent.
Elneny’s current deal runs until 2022, and according to Nazmy, he has multiple offers on the table from Turkey if a deal is not put forward by Arsenal.
However, with Elneny playing 31 games in all competitions this season, it seems like he is part of Arteta’s plans for the future, even with new faces expected this summer.
Nazmy also confirmed that staying at Arsenal is the player’s first choice, so a new deal could be confirmed in the coming months.
