One of Arsenal’s out-of-favour loanees has been offered to this Italian giants, the star was cast aside following the appointment of Unai Emery as manager.
According to an Italian daily sports newspaper Tuttosport, representative Sascha Empacher (owner of SPOCS sports consultants) was present at AC Milan’s headquarters, Casa Milan yesterday to discuss a few of his players.
Tuttosport state that the Serie A side management were offered the chance to sign Gunners midfielder Mohamed Elneny, the Egyptian is currently on loan at Turkish side Besiktas.
Mohamed joined the north Londoners just over three-and-a-half-years ago from a Swiss outfit Basel for a fee of £5 million during the legendary French manager Arsene Wenger’s reign, according to BBC Sport.
The holding midfielder was largely used as a rotation variant during his time in north London but it seemed that Unai included the Egyptian in the deadwood that the manager wished to clear from the Emirates Stadium this summer.
Emery has made three appearances in all competitions for Besiktas so far this campaign, the 27-year-old will be hoping to get some more first-team minutes under his belt so he can secure a permanent transfer to a top club.
Egypt international’s start to life in Turkey did not get off to the best of starts, Mohamed was sent off on his debut.
Elneny made over 85 matches for Arsenal across all competitions during his time at the Gunners.
