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.
Mohamed Elneny has played 80 times for Arsenal since signing from Basel, scoring 2 goals and creating 8 assists in that time.
The 26-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Egypt.
Elneny has also scored 6 goals in 69 games for his country.
Monchi wants to sign a new midfielder and Elneny is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.
Mohamed Elneny would provide a good variety to Roma’s midfield.
According to the Football Italia, “Roma have reportedly asked Arsenal if they can sign Egypt international Mohamed Elneny on loan with option to buy. According to Tuttomercatoweb, the 26-year-old is a new January transfer target with the door open to either confirm his purchase or let him return to London at the end of the season. Roma are seeking midfield reinforcements, as Daniele De Rossi and Steven Nzonzi are dealing with injury problems.”
