Leicester are interested in signing Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny, who has been just a peripheral figure at the club since Unai Emery’s appointment as Gunners manager.
Mohamed Elneny is believed to want regular first-team minutes and that looks unlikely to come anytime soon, with Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira firmly established as the club’s first choice central midfielders.
According to the Mirror, Leicester are interested in bringing the former Basel man to the East Midlands.
the Evening Standard have also reported that Elneny has been told to leave the club on loan, having made just seven appearances under Emery.

Elneny has also been urged by Hamdy Nouh, the coach of Egyptian side El Mokawloon, to leave Arsenal and try to regain some confidence.
He said: “He needs to leave Arsenal in the next transfer market, at least on loan to play more and regain his confidence.
“He has been influenced lately by the change in coach and his new style, but I am confident that he will return better than before, because of his great potential and the competitive spirit that will help him get back in.”
