With Arsenal set to let one Egyptian leave this summer in Mohamed Elneny, they could look at brining another in as they chase 23-year-old Omar Marmoush.

The winger, who plays for Stuttgart on loan, has three goals and four assists this season in 18 games, although he has only played the full 90 minutes five times as a foot injury interrupted his season.

The Egyptian international signed for Wolfsburg from Wadi Degla in Egypt when he was 18 and spent last season on loan with FC St Pauli where he scored seven, and assisted three, in 21 games.

The German publication, Bild, report that both Mikel Arteta and Antonio Conte are monitoring the winger with an eye to a summer move.

Speaking previously, Marmoush, who has 11 caps for Egypt, said, “I’d like to one day play for a big team in the Premier League. I hope to one day play alongside Salah.”

Marmoush is under contract until 2023 with his parent club and is valued at around £4m.
