Wenger confirms Arsenal deal for Basel midfielder Elneny

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that Mohamed Elneny will join the club this week.

The Egyptian midfielder is in London to undergo a medical and agree personal terms on a reported £5million move from FC Basel.

While the transfer is yet to be officially confirmed by Arsenal, the manager of the North London club has indicated a deal is set to be complete which could allow 23-year-old Elneny to make his Gunners debut against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium this weekend.

Following Wednesday night's 3-3 draw at Liverpool, Wenger said: "Elneny will join us. We will see if he can qualify for Sunday."

Egypt international Elneny has been with Swiss club Basel since 2013 after joining from Cairo-based El Mokawloon.
