Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny has reportedly agreed on personal terms with Galatasaray, as he waits for both clubs to agree on a transfer fee.
Last season, Elneny was a regular in Arsenal’s lineup, as under Arteta he played a total of 41 games with the Gunners, scoring three goals along the way.
The Egyptian midfielder who won the Arsenal Goal of the Season award last year for his strike against Dundalk FC in the Europa League group stages has seen limited game time this season after he was benched in Arsenal’s two opening Premier League games, which they lost to newly-promoted Brentford FC and Chelsea but played the second-half in their devastating 5-0 loss to Manchester City.
It was recently rumoured that the Egypt international might leave North London to return to Turkey, where he had spent the 2019/2020 season with Besiktas on loan and showed great displays.
Although, the Gunners have reportedly rejected an offer from Galatasaray with Turkish news outlet Ajansspor disclosing that the Lions agreed on personal terms with the Egypt international.
The report suggests that Elneny will sign a four-year deal and will receive €2.250 million-plus a €,250,000 in bonuses after 10 matches.
However, Galatasaray are yet to find an agreement with Arsenal regarding the player’s transfer fee, whose contract expires in June of 2022.
It is yet to be seen if the two clubs finally agree on a fee or the Egyptian midfielder stays with the Gunners for the remainder of the season.
