‘The Egyptian Pirlo’ ‘We Should Still Sell Him’ Fans Debate Arsenal Star’s Future After Making Excellent Start To The Season

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta’s decision to recall Mohamed Elneny to the starting eleven at the start of the campaign has surprised many supporters.

The Egyptian international spent last season out on loan at Besiktas and many had expected him to be sold this summer without playing another game for the London club.

However, Arteta was seemingly impressed by Elneny during preseason, and he subsequently selected him to start in the Community Shield against Liverpool and in the win versus Fulham last weekend. The 28-year-old repaid the faith of his manager by performing well in both games. Fans on Twitter are now debating whether the Gunners should keep hold of the player:


It does feel like Arteta is using Elneny as a stop-gap to some extent with both Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi effectively on the transfer list. It could be the case that the Egyptian will be utilised until they can find a replacement like Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey.
