ARSENAL are in talks with Galatasaray over a £10million move for Mohamed Elneny, according to reports.
The Egyptian midfielder joined Arsene Wenger’s side just 18 months ago but already they are open to him leaving.
Fotospor claim Galatasaray’s sporting director Cenk Ergun has been in London looking to finalise a deal.
And the Turkish side could now be in pole position to sign Elneny after he rejected a £10m bid from Leicester, as revealed by SunSport.
Elneny has a contract at the Emirates until 2020.
But he made just 14 Premier League appearances last season – with only eight of those being starts.
Elneny joined the Gunners from Basel in January last year for a fee of £5m.
Talk of his exit comes with Arsenal facing a series of switches in the middle of the park this summer.
