Arsene Wenger has revealed Mohamed Elneny's proposed transfer from Basle has become complicated - but he still expects the midfielder to sign for Arsenal.

Egypt international Elneny has been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium since before the transfer window opened.

But the deal is yet to be completed, despite Basle confirming the 23-year-old had missed recent training sessions to seal the transfer.

Addressing the media ahead of Arsenal's FA Cup third-round clash with Sunderland, Wenger admitted there are one or two snags.

"It is complicated a little bit," he said. "But we are working hard on it and hopefully in the next two or three days we will get to the end of it.

"I don't rule out anyone else, but he will be at least one of the signings that comes into an area where we are short at the moment."

Wenger also said reports the club were looking at signing Watford striker Troy Deeney were wide of the mark, as was speculation linking Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain with a move to London rivals Chelsea.
