Olympiakos are reportedly one of many clubs keeping tabs on Egypt international Mohamed Elneny.
According to the football transfer rumours in British and Greek media, Olympiakos are linked with fresh move for Mohamed Elneny.
The Egypt international joined Arsenal from Basel for a fee in the region of 12.5 million euros in January 2016. His contract expires in the summer of 2022. In September 2019, Mohamed Elneny was sent to Besiktas on a season-long loan.
The midfielder has featured in 28 matches for Besiktas this term, providing two assists in all competitions.
The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Egypt.
His record for Egypt is impressive. Elneny has scored 6 goals in 77 matches for Egypt at senior level.
Mohamed Elneny is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Arsenal this summer and the list of suitors in the Egypt international continues to grow.
Adding a midfielder remains Olympiakos’ priority this summer and Pedro Martins will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming weeks.
The report claims that Olympiakos manager has extensively scouted Elneny and is considering a move for the midfielder.
Olympiakos are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
The Egypt international will offer the Olympiakos boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.
According to the report, “Olympiakos are chasing a deal for Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny. The Egypt international is currently on-loan with Besiktas, but a release from his contract is now being considered. Sportime in Greece says Olympiakos are watching developments closely and prepared to move for the midfielder once his wrangle with Besiktas is settled. With the season due to resume in Turkey, there’s confusion around whether Elneny will be part of the Besiktas squad for the restart. Besiktas’ board is in the process of cutting their budget for next season and are set to allow the Gunners midfielder to depart.”
