Arsenal’s new signing Mohamed Elneny’s has already targeted winning the treble this season, despite him not even making his debut yet.

The Egyptian completed his move to the Gunners from Basel on Thursday for a reported £5 million having been at the Swiss club for three years.

Elneny has been brought in to plug the gap left by injuries to Francis Coquelin, Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla and the 23-year-old has outlined his hopes for the remainder of the campaign.

"I would like to tell [the fans] that, although you have not seen much of me, I promise I will contribute positively with the team,” the defensive midfielder told the club’s official website.

"I am hoping that we win the Premier League and cup this season, and the Champions League as well.”

Elneny has played in England before when he represented Egypt at the London 2012 Olympics, helping them reach the quarter-finals.

He has also won three consecutive Swiss Super League titles at Basel and was part of the team that managed to beat and draw against Liverpool during last year’s Champions League campaign.


Elneny spoke of his pride at joining the Emirates club admitting that he already knows plenty about the Gunners.

“It is an indescribable feeling, I am really glad of course,” Elneny said.

“Arsenal is one of the world’s greatest teams, and I am very keen to participate positively with my new team, God willing, and to give my best for the team and for myself.

“Arsenal is one of those teams that everyone enjoys watching and of course I would love to play for such a great team.

“It is one the biggest clubs in the world, I know everything about it and its players.

The midfielder also had high praise for his new boss.

“Mr Wenger is a highly respected manager and one of the world’s best managers. It is my honour to be trained under his management."

Elneny is eligible to play in the Champions League for Arsenal and may be thrown straight into the side for Sunday’s clash against Stoke.
