Arsenal have included an €18m option-to-buy as part of Mohamed Elneny’s loan deal to Besiktas.

Elneny has established himself as a first-team player in the Besiktas midfield.

The resurgent form of the Black Eagles over the past few weeks with Elneny in the side has resulted in rumours regarding the temporary move being made permanent.

The Fanatik newspaper claim that Elneny has an €18m clause but that Arsenal.

Per the source, the Gunners are keen on selling the 27-year-old.

Elneny got off to a rocky start and picked up two red cards. The Black-Whites have won four games and drawn one out of the five games Elneny featured in since returning from his last suspension.

Arsenal are currently without a manager after the sacking of Unai Emery and it remains to be seen whether his replacement will have long term plans for the midfielder.

Besiktas have won their last four games in a row and are currently just three points behind leaders Sivasspor.
