For the past few days, Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny has been linked with a move to Turkey, where the transfer window closes later today.

On Tuesday, we covered claims made by Fanatik that explained Galatasaray and Beşiktaş have showed interest in the midfielder, but ‘gave up’ signing him due to his high demands.

The 29-year-old ‘demanded’ €1.7m in wages annually from the Black Eagles, while he asked for a four-year deal worth €2.5m per season from Faith Terim’s side.

After giving up on the Gunners player due to the ‘high cost’ of the operation, Galatasaray ‘re-established’ contact yesterday, as per Takvim.

It’s claimed there is an ‘agreement in principle’ between the Süper Lig side and the Egypt international as the latter has ‘accepted’ Galatasaray’s offer of €2.5m per year plus bonuses.

Galatasaray will have to find an agreement with the north London club for the transfer to go through.

Takvim say Mikel Arteta’s side ‘want’ €4m to cut ties with Elneny and the negotiations between the two clubs ‘continue’.

Although Galatasaray have made progress with the signing after finding an agreement with Elneny, time is running out for all parties involved in the deal to seal the transfer.
