According to The Times, there has been approach from Bordeaux for Arsenal defensive midfielder Mohamed Elneny.

It has been reported that Elneny has been available for sale by Arsenal this summer, and that the 26-year-old Egypt international could leave the Gunners.

The report has also claimed that the former Basel star was offered to Crystal Palace and Fulham last summer, but his weekly salary of £55,000 were too high for them.

Arsenal spell

Elneny has been on the books of Arsenal since January 2016 when he joined from Basel for a transfer fee reported by The Telegraph to be worth £7 million and when Arsene Wenger was in charge of the Gunners.

The 26-year-old has played well on occasions, but he has not been the force in midfield that many wanted him and expected him to be.

According to WhoScored, Elneny made five starts and three substitute appearances in the Premier League for Arsenal last season, and made nine starts and three substitute appearances in the league for the Gunners during the 2017-18 campaign.
