New signing Mohamed Elneny is the ‘perfect fit’ for Arsenal, says Charlie Nicholas.
The Egypt international completed a £5m move from Basel this week and football Saturday pundit Nicholas believes the defensive midfielder will be a key addition to Arsene Wenger’s Premier League title-chasing squad.
Charlie Nicholas said
“Elneny is a perfect fit for Arsenal and someone I’ve been screaming out for,”
“At the start of the season Arsenal needed two positions filling, goalkeeper and a holding midfielder. They signed Petr Cech but never filled the other position, which was a bit of a mistake for me.
“He has a powerful shot from distance, he’s very controlled and eats up the ground and there’s an elegance about him.”
