Elneny wants a new contract with Arsenal


Mohamed Elneny has revealed his willingness to sign a new Arsenal contract.

The Egyptian midfielder arrived in the Emirates in 2016, but he was never in the starting XI under any of the three managers he worked with in north London. Looking from the outside, his days at the club seemed numbered when he joined Besiktas on loan in 2019, but the player insists that was never the case for himself.

He returned to the club last summer and with his 30 appearances in all competitions this season, he has shown that he can still be of use to Mikel Arteta as the Spaniard looks for ways to bring the team back to the top of the English football.

As cited by the Evening standard, the 28-year-old said his loyalty belongs to Arsenal and if the club offered him a new deal, he would sign it without thinking.

His current contract expires in 2022.
