Sampdoria rival Besiktas for Arsenal midfielder Elneny

Sampdoria are interested in Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny.

TMW says Elneny returned to the Arsenal first team for the Community Shield, but the Egyptian international could be the subject of a new transfer tug-of-war.

Elneny, who is under contract until 2022, spent last season on loan at Besiktas and had been linked with a return to the Turkish club.

Sampdoria are also interested in taking the midfielder on a season-long loan.

Sampdoria manager Claudio Ranieri has already turned to the Premier League once this summer, signing Maya Yoshida from Southampton following a loan spell, and Elneny could be the second player to move to the Serie A club after several years in England
