Report: £5m Arsenal man's move to Turkish giants breaks down
Arsenal are increasingly likely to have Mohamed Elneny on their books until January at least.
According to talkSPORT, the Gunners midfielder was in talks with Besiktas over a move.
The Turkish transfer window is open until 8 September, so Arsenal could still sell Elneny this year.
But talks with Besiktas have reportedly broken down as the parties involved weren’t able to agree wage remands.
Galatasaray have also been linked with the £5million Arsenal midfielder’s services in recent weeks.
There has been a new development on that front – football.london claims the Gunners have rejected a new bid from Gala.
The outlet claims Arsenal would be open to letting Elneny leave for the right price.
Elneny’s contract, reportedly worth £49,000-a-week, expires next year.
Therefore the Gunners will likely have to sell him at a bargain price in January or have him leave for nothing in the summer if he doesn’t leave this week.
The 28-year-old spent the 2019-20 campaign on loan at Besiktas, making 36 appearances for the club.
Elneny has made 132 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions and has won 79 caps for Egypt.
Arsenal players Cedric Soares and Sead Kolasinac have also been linked with moves to Turkey in recent weeks.
