Mohamed Elneny claims Arsenal are one of the five biggest clubs in world football

The January signing has talked up the size of the Gunners.

Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny has told Arsenal Player, as quoted by the London Evening Standard, that he has learned a great deal in his first five months at the Emirates because the Gunners are one of the five biggest clubs in the world.

Elneny has impressed since his arrival in England from Basel in January, becoming a key man in Arsene Wenger's midfielder and winning two player of the month awards at the Emirates Stadium.

Though he is likely to face increased competition from a fit-again Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla next season, it appears as though the Egyptian international has already become integral to the North Londoners.

The 23-year-old admitted that he had a lot of learning to do to adapt to life at the Premier League club after his move from Switzerland, particularly as he believes the Gunners are one of the biggest five clubs in world football.

Elneny told Arsenal Player, as quoted by the Standard: "When I came to Arsenal, there were different ideas. If you went somewhere thinking you know everything, then you'll never learn. I gain experience and I always learn from people here because they are successful.

"Arsenal are one of the biggest five clubs in the world so they're definitely successful people. You have to listen to everyone here to gain their experience."

Though the Gunners saw another title challenge crumble in the final months of the season, they did at least secure their status - in terms of the league table, at least - as the biggest club in London by leapfrogging arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur to finish second on the final day of the campaign.

Wenger and the club must now look ahead to a crucial summer transfer window which could be the difference between them being able to follow a title push through until the end next term, or once again falling by the wayside.
