Having joined from Swiss side FC Basel in January 2016, Mohamed Elneny has enjoyed a steady, if unspectacular career with Arsenal.
After the loan signing of Dani Ceballos earlier this summer, Elneny slid further down the pecking order in the Arsenal midfield, and it has now been confirmed the 27-year-old will be spending a season away from the Emirates.
The north London side revealed on their official club website that the Egyptian has joined Turkish giants Besiktas on a season-long loan.

After hearing the update on Elneny’s future, Arsenal fans took to Twitter to reveal their thoughts on the move.
Many supporters of the north London side hailed Raul Sanllehi for producing a “masterclass” in the summer transfer window, and helping to get rid of some of the deadwood in the squad.
Check out some of the reaction of Arsenal fans below:

Elneny was a decent squad player but now we have many options in CM especially with Guendouzi and Willock coming through. Another player off the books, Don Raul masterclass this summer https://t.co/xJrpjN6NTN
