Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny open to staying with Besiktas

Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny is open to staying with Besiktas.

Elneny is currently on loan at the Turkish side until the end of the season after joining them last summer.

“Of course I am happy because I feel like I am part of the Besiktas family," said Elneny.

“Always, always, know I am glad to be here and I don't know about the future.

“Of course I don't know about the future, but if Besiktas want me they can pay my current team and I can stay.

“Of course I am happy to here and I always fight to help my team-mates, to help with the club, to improve and to be like I wish.

“Every time I wish we win every game. That's what we expect because we are a big club and we have big players and we have a good team."

Pushed on whether he could see himself playing for Besiktas next season, Elneny told BeIN Sports: “Really I don't know.

“Football always changes and I don't know about the future.

“I don't know if the club (Besiktas) want me or not, you have to ask the club as well if they want me or not and if they want me to continue with them.

“I have said all the time I am happy here. I am glad to be here. I always loved playing at big clubs.

“Before I played at Basel in Switzerland, the big club there, Arsenal is one of the biggest clubs in the world and Besiktas is a big club around the world - everyone knows this.

“It is up to the club because if the club want me, I want to stay. I can stay, no problem."
