Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny could follow Aaron Ramsey out of the Emirates in January, according to Sky Sports.
Ramsey is set to be sold during the winter transfer window as his contract expires in the summer with no hope of a renewal. Elneny could follow him out due to lack of game time.
The Egyptian international has not made a single Premier League appearance this season, with all four of his appearances so far coming in the Europa league and League cup.
It is said that Unai Emery who has transformed the club since taking over from Arsene Wenger does not rate the midfielder, preferring 19-year-old Matteo Guendouzi to the 69 capped Egyptian.
Elneny joined Arsenal in January 2016 and has gone on to make just 76 appearances for the Gunners as he has never been seen to possess the composure on the ball necessary to play at such a high-level side as the Gunners.
He doesn’t seem to be comfortable being on the fringe any longer and wants out as soon as January, with interests from a number of sides reported in the summer.
However, it is surprising that he would want to leave at a time when Ramsey is leaving, given that they play in the same position and the Welshman’s departure is likely to give him more game time.
The Gunners are unlikely to replace Ramsey in January should he depart the club, as Emery earlier revealed they are unlikely to make any signings in the winter transfer window, but should Elneny also push for a move, they might be forced to dip into the market.
