Arsenal were desperate to bring in a central midfielder on Deadline Day as Mohamed Elneny picked up a significant knee injury in training which is expected to keep him out for the rest of the season.
Mikel Arteta seems to have got his wish with Chelsea’s, Jorginho on his way to Arsenal to provide the much needed depth in midfielder for Thomas Partey & Granit Xhaka.
Arsenal released the news today that Mohamed Elneny has had successful surgery in London and will be ruled out for an extended period of time.
However the long-term injury to Elneny hasn’t had an impact on Arsenal taking up the option to extend his contract so let’s up the Egyptian is back on the pitch sooner rather than later.
