Arsenal star Mohamed Elneny’s agent has posted on Twitter after reports from Italy claimed the Gunners midfielder had been offered to AC Milan, only for the Serie A side to have turned down such a proposal.
Elneny, 27, is currently on loan at Besiktas after the signing of Dani Ceballos pushed the Egypt international even further down the Gunners pecking order. Unai Emery was willing to sanction a move, and Elneny has since played nine times.
Italian outlet CalcioMercato have claimed this week that 77-time Egypt international Elneny was offered to Milan by his representatives. It is believed Elneny has two more years after this season on his £50,000-a-week (Spotrac) Arsenal contract.
The report has seemingly incensed Elneny’s management and Alan Nazmy has reacted on Twitter to the report, slamming any truth in the story by insisting that he did not offer the Egyptian midfielder to AC Milan.
We didn’t offer Elneny to any club and we don’t have partnership with the agency Which is the Italian media talking abut @ElNennY

TBR’s view – Elneny must focus on himself, and impressing in Turkey
Regardless of whether Nazmy did indeed offer Elneny’s services to AC Milan sporting director Paolo Maldini or not, Elneny’s best chance of a move in January or next summer is by focusing on his performances for Besiktas.
The former Basel star has made a good start to life in Turkey despite being sent off in his league debut for the club. It remains to be seen if Elneny has a future at Arsenal, but it seems unlikely the player will return – despite his contract.
Shining in Turkey for Besiktas is the only thing Elneny should be concerned with, and with that form, he can look for a new club in the next two windows.
