Turkish website Fotospor report Besiktas are in talks with Arsenal to extend Mohamed Elneny’s loan deal.
The Egyptian midfielder joined the club at the start of the season and he’s been a regular player since.
He’s had his problems with the Besiktas board over unpaid wages in recent weeks, but Fotospor report the Turkish side still want him to stay beyond this season. Last week we covered reports from the Turkish press that Arsenal had threatened to fine him if he decided to strike over the situation.
Talks with Arsenal are set to continue in the coming weeks but Besiktas want Elneny to accept a lower wage if he wants to remain with them.
It’s reported the 27 year old is currently earning €1.5m per season, and Besiktas are only willing to offer €1.2m for next season.
Arsenal will be looking to sell Elneny outright, however, if they don’t they may loan him to Besiktas again.
The former Basel player’s contract at the Emirates will expire at the end of June 2022.
