Besiktas Plan To Replace Atiba Hutchinson With Arsenal Midfielder Mohamed Elneny

Besiktas plan to replace Atiba Hutchinson with Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny over the summer according to Fanatik.

Per the source, the Black Eagles are keen on signing Elneny on loan with an option to buy.

Hutchinson will be out of contract at the end of the season and Besiktas are unlikely to extend his current deal.

The Canada international is aged 36 and this is likely to be his last season at Besiktas after spending the last six years at the club.

The report claims that the Black-Whites have three targets they are keen on as potential replacements for Hutchinson.

Elneny is reportedly Besiktas’ primary target, the other two targets are not named in the piece.

The Egypt international is under contract at Arsenal until 2022 but has struggled for playing time under the stewardship of Unai Emery.

The 26-year-old has made just four Premier League appearances this season. In total Elneny has played featured just 11 times across all competitions playing 745 minutes of first-team football.

Emery prefers Guendouzi and Torreira in his midfield who have played regularly over the current campaign.

Besiktas are currently 3rd in the Super Lig 11 points behind league leaders Basaksehir and five points behind 2nd placed Galatasaray.
