Arsenal: Emery to allow Elneny exit after Bordeaux approach

Arsenal: Emery to allow Elneny exit after Bordeaux approach

Arsenal, after two failed attempts to offload Mohamed Elneny, may finally be able to see the Egyptian out of the door. 

According to The Times, the 26-year-old could now leave The Emirates after an approach from Bordeaux after the Gunners failed in attempts to offer him to both Crystal Palace and Fulham.

It’s reported that the £55,000 p/w wages, as claimed in The Times’ article, were a sticking point for Palace and Fulham, with Arsenal continuing to struggle to offload Elneny.

Arsenal fans didn’t see a lot of Elneny last season. The Egyptian midfielder started just five Premier League games in the competition last season and made only 17 appearances in all competitions.

He made a January move to the club for £5m back in January 2016 (BBC), racking up a total of 89 games, scoring twice, Transfermarkt.

After that move, it took the defensive midfielder less than two months to open his account for the club as he swept in a finish against Barcelona at the Camp Nou in a 3-1 loss in the Champions League.

With his reported wages of £55,000 p/w, keeping him at The Emirates to make just 17 appearances, with only six of those seeing him complete the full 90 minutes simply doesn’t make sense.

Unai Emery is also looking at bringing in a box-to-box midfielder as one of his signings this summer, according to David Ornstein who spoke to BBC Five Live Sport, shipping off Elneny looks like a good way of raising funds and clearing a place in the squad for a new signing.

Arsenal fans, would you be happy offloading Elneny this summer? Comment below!
