Arsenal transfer target Mohamed Elneny will fly in to complete a £5m January move to the Emirates. Mirror Sport revealed on Saturda...
Elneny was allowed to fly home for Christmas but is expected to travel back to London to complete the move to Arsenal. Egyptian midfielder Elneny is a perfect fit for Arsenal as he is only 23, has good energy, is good value and his wages may also be cheaper than the likes of Mathieu Flamini, Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky who are all on big money.
It is believed Wenger will not do a striker because Wenger believes he has depth in the squad and would again rather wait for the summer. Arsenal have looked at Dynamo Moscow striker Aleksandr Kokorin in the summer but could not agree a deal.
In the meantime, Danny Welbeck, Jack Wilshere and Coquelin could all be back in action in February after long term injuries.
