Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny is trying to convince Aston Villa winger and compatriot Trezeguet to join him at Besiktas in the summer, according to Fotomac.
Elneny has played 28 games for the Turkish outfit this season and the club have the option to sign him permanently for £15.7 million in the summer (Turkish Football).
Besiktas are in disarray financially though and although they are unable to sign him permanently, another year on loan would appeal to them.
It would appear he is keen on sticking around too with reports now suggesting that he wants the 25-year-old Villa man to join him.
Trezeguet is facing the real prospect of relegation with Dean Smith’s team having signed for £8.75 million in the summer (BBC).
Besiktas won’t be able to land the winger permanently due to finances but they would be keen to take him on loan.
Trezeguet knows all about Turkish football having spent time with Kasimpasa before his switch to Villa Park.
During his maiden campaign in the Premier League, he has scored four goals and registered three assists during 31 appearances.
His most memorable moment came when he fired Villa into the Carabao Cup final with a last-gasp goal against Leicester City.
If Villa are relegated it seems almost certain that players will be offloaded and Trezeguet could be one of them.
Elneny’s time at Arsenal is up with Mikel Arteta seemingly making plans for life without him.
Another year on loan makes sense and if Besiktas can sort their finances out, maybe they might be keen to sign him permanently the following year.
Elneny would leave the Gunners having played 89 games for the club and never quite really making the grade in the Premier League.
