Mohamed Elneny has found his way back into the Arsenal setup under Arteta. The Egyptian is now aiming for a contract extension.

Mohamed Elneny is looking to complete a remarkable turnaround at Arsenal by landing himself a contract extension.

The Egyptian midfielder appeared destined to be heading for the exits when Unai Emery sent him out on loan to Besiktas at the start of the 2019-20 campaign, with alternative options being favored in north London.

Another Spanish coach, Mikel Arteta, has found room for the 28-year-old within his plans, though, and it could be that fresh terms are now thrashed out at Emirates Stadium.

Elneny said as per the Evening Standard: “Of course, for me I am always loyal to Arsenal.

“And if Arsenal say to me: ‘Sign a new contract’, of course I would be happy to do this.”

Elneny was drafted straight back into the Arsenal side upon his return to England, with a starting berth handed to him in a Community Shield win over Liverpool.

He has now made 30 appearances across all competitions this season. Only three more are required for him to record a personal best for the Gunners.

Elneny recently scored against Olympiacos in the Europa League and the Gunners could yet consider an extension for a loyal servant.
