The 23 year old ex-Basel midfielder has officially joined Arsenal and has received his jersey number. He has been given the number 35 for the season and will be looking to get in the first team at the earliest as Arsene has been hinting that be might be involved over the weekend for the Gunners.

The Egyptian had been linked with a move for the Emirates ever since December and had personally admitted interest in joining the Gunners and finally the move has been completed as a work permit issue had been holding up the transfer for the midfielder due to his non-EU status.

Elneny is widely expected to be a cover for the injured star Coquelin as he has shown similar traits and is calm, solid and composed with the ball. Some sources claim that the fee of just over 7 million can be considered a bargain if the player delivers on his initial promise for the Gunners.

Wenger, who is widely known to promote youth, discussed his chances for involvement in the stoke match and has admitted that he will try to slot in the youngster if he can.

“Elneny will of course join us,” he said. “He has joined us.”

“We will see if he can qualify for Sunday.”

Assuming that he receives all the required permissions, Elneny will have big boots to fill as he weighs up the task in which Arsenal once employed the legendary Patrick Vieira.
