According to the reports, Leicester were keeping tabs on the Egypt international this summer but the 25-year-old wants to stay in London and fight for a starting spot at Arsenal.
Arsenal initially signed Elneny from Basel for £5m in January 2016, with the right-footed midfielder making 40 appearances across all competitions for The Gunners ever since, many of which have come as a substitute or cup game starts.
However, the former Arab Contractors player is enjoying a delightful pre-season with Arsenal, as the North London club recently beat German champions Bayern Munich at the International Champions Cup in Shanghai with Elneny playing the full 90 minutes.
It’s worth mentioning that Elneny became the first Egyptian player to lift the FA Cup after Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-1 in the final last May and the Egyptian made a late substitute appearance for Alexis Sanchez in added time.
