Arsenal rejected a late bid from Galatasaray for Mohamed Elneny after the player reportedly found an agreement with the Turkish side. Arsenal wanted €4m (£3.42m) for the £9m-rated midfielder (€10.5m). Galatasaray probably offered two packets of crisps and a bottle of juice when Elneny made his 3,500th appearance.
