#5 Mohamed Elneny - from Basel to Arsenal for 5 million
Mohamed Elneny arrives at Arsenal with an impressive reputation having played 106 games for Basel in the two previous seasons. Popular for his work rate, the Egypt international has won several trophies for the Swiss side and has also featured in their Champions league campaigns regularly. Although the 23-year-old arrives as cover to the midfielders in the starting XI, Elneny has already started a game and made his debut for the Londoners in the FA cup victory against Burnley. Arsene Wenger was full of praise for the midfielder and expects him to be good signing for Arsenal. Elneny’s price tag won’t be a burden on his shoulders as the defensive midfielder looks to establish himself in the EPL.
