It’s been reported Unai Emery is keen to bring Mohamed Elneny to Aston Villa as the current Arsenal player enters the last six months of his contract.
While Mikel Arteta still has previously stated he values the defensive midfielder as a useful part of his squad, he has hardly featured this season, making just seven appearances. Mikel Arteta has rarely made changes to his starting eleven this season unless he has to & that’s one of the reasons why Arsenal find themselves top of the Premier League.
Arsene Wenger signed the Egyptian in January 2016 from Basel and he has gone on to play 154 times for The Gunners, but could his time in North London be up?
It doesn’t seem likely that Arsenal will renew Elneny’s current contract beyond the end of this season and as such Arteta may look to sell the player before the end of the month.
It is The Mirror reporting that Unai Emery wants to reunite with Mohamed Elneny at Villa Park.
While the reports do claim that Arsenal would be willing to sell Elneny this month for around £6million, it would be surprising to see Arteta let any player go while they’re pushing for the title.
