As reported by the Daily Mirror, Ligue 1 giants Marseille are reportedly eyeing move for Arsenal’s and Egypt international midfielder Mohamed Elneny.

Marseille, who defeated Toulouse 4-0 in their opening league game of the new season last Friday, have been linked with a late interest for the out of favour Arsenal midfielder.

Elneny last season, netted just one goals but created four assist across 32 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal under Arsene Wenger.

Elneny joined Arsenal from FC Basel in a reported £7.4m in January 2016, and has scored two goals in 72 appearances so far for Arsenal and he’s currently valued at £9m as per Transfermkt.
