AC Milan ‘turn down Mohamed Elneny’ after out-of-favour Arsenal midfielder offered himself to club as he tries to sort future following Besiktas loan
AC Milan have reportedly turned down the advances of Mohamed Elneny after he approached the Serie A Club for a possible transfer.
Egyptian international Elneny is currently looking to sort out his future, as he remains out of favour with Arsenal, and is currently on loan at Besiktas.
According to reports in Italy as reported by The Sun, he and an intermediary offered his services to the Rossoneri for the upcoming January transfer window.

However the club are said to have refused the 27-year-old’s offer, believing that he would be low down the pecking order of midfield options if he were to join.
Arsenal outcast Elneny joined the Gunners for £7m from Swiss side Basel back in 2016.
Elneny made 89 appearances for the Premier League club across all competitions, scoring just two goals.
However the Egyptian international dropped out of contention for a starting place at The Emirates in part to the signings of Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guenduozi in 2018.

After making just eight appearances for Arsenal in the league last season, Elneny was sent out on loan to Besiktas in August with an optional buy-out clause.
He made an inauspicious start to life in Turkey with a red card on his debut and was banned for three games.
So far he has made five appearances for the club but is already believed to have expressed his desire for a new challenge.
