Midfielder Mohamed Elneny is extending his stay with us.
Mo, 29, has been a key member of the squad since joining us from Basel in 2016. He’s made 147 appearances, scoring five goals and contributing 10 assists.
Mo, the first Egyptian ever to play for the club, has 93 international appearances to his name.
He made his Arsenal debut in a 2–1 win against Burnley in the FA Cup in January 2016 and was in the 2016/17 FA Cup-winning squad.
He was also part of the team that won the FA Community Shield in 2017 and 2020 and helped us reach the 2018/19 UEFA Europa League Final in Baku.
“I love this club and I feel like part of this family,” Mo told Arsenal Media.
“I want to continue at this amazing club and amazing family and I’m very happy and very excited for the future.
Manager Mikel Arteta said:
“Mo is a really important part of the team. He brings endless energy, enthusiasm and commitment to the team and is loved by everyone. He’s an important player for us on and off the pitch, a real role model to our younger players and I’m delighted he’s staying.”
Technical Director Edu added:
“Mo has an incredible mentality which is so important for our squad. He helps the team as much as he can every day. We are all very happy to have him with us as we look to build on what has been achieved this season.”
The new contract is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
