Elneny waiting for Arsenal to say 'Mo, we want you'

Egypt international Mohamed Elneny wants to stay at Arsenal beyond this season.

The midfielder has enjoyed a renaissance in the first team in the past few weeks.

Despite his importance to Mikel Arteta's side as they look to secure a top four finish in the Premier League, Elneny is out of contract in the summer.

"I've said before, if Arsenal want me, it's my club, my family, but it's not my decision," Elneny told Sky Sports.

"I have to wait for them to say 'Mo, we want you'.

"Since the first day I have been here, it has felt like a family. We really work like that here, it's such a beautiful club."

He added: "I always believed. I do my job, I let Mikel [Arteta] do his job too, and respect his decisions. He always does the right thing for the team, that's what I believe.

"[Thomas] Partey and [Granit] Xhaka were playing and doing really well, there was never anything to explain, I understood. I just knew I had to be ready, we work as a team and in football,l everything can change in one second.

"When you suddenly are playing and the fans can see you, when you feel you play well, when you're winning, you feel that change. I'm really proud when I hear something good about me, and they see how hard I work for this club."
