Besiktas will be unable to keep Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny beyond the end of the season.
A Besiktas source told Turkish-Football that they will be unable to keep hold of Elneny as Arsenal have set an €18m buy option.
It is unlikely that the Gunners agree to a new loan deal and Elneny has reservations over staying following a lengthy pay dispute with the Black Eagles.
The problem Elneny has with the club is of a financial nature, otherwise, he is happy at the club.
He had outstanding payments which were delayed for months by the Black-Whites.
The Egypt international is happy at the club and has settled in well to life in Turkey establishing himself as a fan favorite.
Head coach Sergen Yalcin is also keen on Elneny and would like him to stay but it is highly unlikely that an agreement is reached.
Besiktas are in financial trouble and will have to cut the wage budget over the summer.
Elneny put on an impressive display in Besiktas’ 3-1 victory over Konyaspor this weekend and the 5-1 win over Denizlispor last week.
The back-to-back victories have put Besiktas just two points within fourth-placed Galatasaray.
