The most recent big Arsenal transfer story to hit the bar concerned this man, FC Basel’s Mohamed Elneny.
A defensive midfielder by trade, Elneny actually looks as if he’ll be joining the Gunners imminently with the speculation now having reached BBC Sport with their correspondent David Ornstein confirming last night that Arsene Wenger’s side are in talks with the Egyptian international.
According to Physio Room, Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla’s return dates are scheduled for February and March respectively at present and for once, Arsenal fans are actually quite hopeful that Arsene Wenger will take action this time.
Given this first choice duo are still out for a large chunk of the season, a defensive midfielder is what Arsenal will be prioritising and an affordable choice such as the £5 million-rated Elneny could well be the answer for Wenger.
