Roma ask Arsenal for Elneny

Roma have reportedly asked Arsenal if they can sign Egypt international Mohamed Elneny on loan with option to buy.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the 26-year-old is a new January transfer target with the door open to either confirm his purchase or let him return to London at the end of the season.

Elneny joined the Gunners from FC Basel in January 2016 at a cost of €12.5m, but made only eight competitive appearances this season.

Roma are seeking midfield reinforcements, as Daniele De Rossi and Steven Nzonzi are dealing with injury problems.
