Arsenal ready to cut loose Elneny as Galatasaray circle

Galatasaray are closing on a deal for Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny.

Fanatik says Elneny is poised for a January free transfer - with Galatasaray leading the race.

The Turkish giants have reportedly already held talks with the Egypt star after having a September bid rejected.

Negotiations are at the 'signing stage' - ahead of a possible deal in the next transfer window,

Elneny has played just twice in the Premier League this season.

And the 29-year-old's contract runs out in June.

His agent William D'Avila revealed this month the former Basel anchorman was keen to join Galatasaray.

One small complication could be Elneny departing in January for the African Cup of Nations.

But a reunion with Gunners legend Mesut Ozil in Istanbul still seems likely.

Galatasaray boss Faith Terim is said to have demanded that his board pursue Elneny.
