New Arsenal signing Elneny has massive ambitions for this season

Arsenal signing Mohamed Elneny is targeting Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup success in his first five months with the club, reports the London Evening Standard.

"I promise I will contribute positively with the team," he told Arsenal media.

And Elneny is optimistic about the club's chances of winning every trophy available to them this season after developing a taste for silverware in Switzerland. During three years in Basel, the 23-year-old won three league titles and hopes pace-setters Arsenal will still be on top in May.

"I am hoping that we win the Premier League and cup this season," he added. "And the Champions League as well, God willing."

Asked if Wenger had played a major role in convincing him to switch Basel for Arsenal, he said: "For sure, Mr. Wenger is a highly respect manager and one of the world's best managers.

"It is my honour to be trained under his management."
