Mohamed Elneny’s agent is reportedly in negotiations with Real Betis as he tries to seal a January move away from Beiktas for his unhappy client.
Mohamed Elneny’s agent knows his client is not enjoying his life in Turkey. As such, Sascha Empacher has been looking for a way to get him out not long after he put him there in the first place.
The Egyptian 27-year-old, who is still under contract with Arsenal until 2022, has made just six Super Lig appearances this season, missing three after being sent off in his first match.
He has, however, played all but eight minutes of those matches, excluding the 14 that came after he was sent off. In the Europa League he has played 90 minutes of Besiktas’s five games, coming on as sub in the other.
So this isn’t about lack of playing time which is why he left Arsenal (along with the problem of not really being wanted anyway).
Reports started to emerge at the start of October that he wasn’t happy at Besiktas and was keen to move as soon as possible.
He is reportedly valued at €15m.
