Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has heaped praise on Mohamed Elneny.
The Egyptian was loaned out to Besiktas this summer after being made surplus to requirements by Wenger’s predecessor Unai Emery.
He told beIN Sports: “First and foremost, Elneny is a modern day midfielder.
“He will work hard for the team. He has a great technique. His physical attributes are also very important.
“His passes are also very direct and will help the team in attacking areas.”
