Posted on July 25, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

According to the Metro, Turkish Super Lig side Galatasaray are keen to sign Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny this summer. The two clubs are believed to have agreed a £10m fee for the 25-year-old and this news comes just a day after Elneny rejected a move to Leicester City for a similar asking price.

Elneny, signed from FC Basel in January 2016 for around £5m, made just 14 Premier League appearances for the Gunners last season and spent much of the campaign on the periphery. His debut season at the Emirates Stadium was successful, twice being voted Arsenal’s Player of the Month, but he’s since failed to uproot Granix Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey from midfield.
