The January transfer window is now open, sparking plenty of talk about who Arsenal could sign this month, but there are also suggestions that one or two might be on the way out.

Football.London put together a report on Arsenal’s expected transfer activity this month, and they mentioned four senior stars who could depart permanently in January. Let’s have a look at each of them:

  • Age: 26
  • Contract Until: 2022
  • Position: Defensive Midfield
  • Estimated Transfer Value: £9m

Football.London claim Elneny is expected to be made available this month, after playing just 59 minutes of Premier League football this season.

The Egyptian midfielder has had more luck in the Europa League and the League Cup, making six starts and providing one assist, with Arsenal winning all six matches. However, that’s still not exactly what you’d describe as ‘regular’ football.

According to the report, Leicester could ‘revive their pursuit’ of Elneny, with Vicente Iborra seemingly on the way out. The Foxes previously agreed a £10m deal for the Arsenal man in 2017, but the player himself eventually decided to turn it down.

Elneny has always given his all for Arsenal, and he appears to provide a positive influence in the dressing room. On the pitch, his influence is wavering, so perhaps a move would be the best thing for his career.
