Egypt international Mohamed Elneny has emerged as an Olympique de Marseilletarget as the French side want the Arsenal man to replace Zambo Anguissa.
Anguissa has left Marseille a week ago to join Premier League side Fulham, leaving the French side with no suitable replacement apart from Luiz Gustavo.
According to MaxiFoot, the club’s sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta is eyeing Mohamed Elneny as a potential replacement for Zambo Anguissa, especially with the Egyptian not being part of Unai Emery’s plans.
A number of reports have revealed that Arsenal may consider selling Mohamed Elneny this summer after the arrival of Lucas Torreira and Mattéo Guendouzi.
However, Elneny’s name was not put on the club’s transfer list, which was announced by the Arsenal boss last Friday.
The Egyptian was on the bench during Arsenal’s 2-0 loss to Manchester City on Sunday, and it remains unclear whether he will be used by Unai Emery this season or not.
If successful, Elneny will be the second Egyptian player to join Marseille after Ahmed Hossam Mido, who played for the French side during the 2003-2004 season.
Mohamed Elneny has joined Arsenal in January 2016 from FC Basel after he caught the eyes of Arsene Wenger, but the Egyptian struggled to nail down a starting place since then.
He has made 72 appearances for the Gunners, scoring twice and providing seven assists and has signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal last March.
