The Egypt international only missed four league games – all due to suspension – and made a total of 36 appearances in all competitions.
Elneny played a key role in the Besiktas team which managed to finish third and qualify for the Champions League.
The 27-year-old left on good terms but did have a pay dispute with the club over unpaid earnings.
Besiktas wanted Elneny to stay on loan beyond the end of the season but the pay issue derailed talks.
Turkish-Football report that Trabzonspor and Galatasaray are, however, in talks with the midfielder over a loan deal.
Elneny is open to returning to Turkey but for the time being he will join the Arsenal pre-season camp.
The Premier League kicks off in September with Arsenal set to face Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Despite being back in London, Goal report that Elneny does ‘not look certain’ to feature in head coach Mikel Arteta’s plans.
Elneny has been an Arsenal player since 2016 making a total of 89 appearances in all competitions for the North London outfit and still has another two years remaining on his contract.
