CAIRO – 5 March 2020: Besiktas will start talks with Arsenal to keep the Egyptian midfielder, Mohamed Elneny, beyond the end of the season according to Turkish Football.

The Egyptian midfielder joined Besiktas from Arsenal last summer on a season-long loan deal and since then he became a vital member at the club.

Elneny expressed his desire to stay at the Turkish club, saying “Of course I am happy because I feel like I am part of the Besiktas family. Always, always, know I am glad to be here and I don’t know about the future.”

Elneny was a key player under Arsenal’s former manager, Arsene Wenger, who signed him from Basel FC in Switzerland in 2016.

Elneny failed to establish himself as a key player at the club since the arrival of Unai Emery who succeeded Wenger at the manager’s position.

The Egyptian midfielder’s journey with football started when he was 6 as he was recruited by scouts of the Egyptian giants, Al-Ahly.

Elneny defended the red shirt for almost a decade before the club released him which was a turning point in his life as he joined Arab Contractors.

Three years later, Elneny was a first team member and started his journey with football as a professional.
