Arsenal Football Club has announced that Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Elneny has signed a new contract extension, which will keep him at the club until June 2024. The 29-year-old has been an important part of the squad since joining the club in 2016 from Swiss side Basel.

During his time at the Emirates, Elneny has made 147 appearances, scoring five goals and providing 10 assists. He was also the first Egyptian to ever play for the club and has 93 international appearances to his name.

Elneny made his debut for Arsenal in January 2016 in a 2-1 victory against Burnley in the FA Cup. He was also part of the FA Cup-winning squad in the 2016/17 season and helped Arsenal win the FA Community Shield in 2017 and 2020. Additionally, he played a significant role in helping the team reach the UEFA Europa League Final in 2018/19.

In an interview with Arsenal Media, Elneny expressed his excitement about continuing his journey with the club. “I love this club and I feel like part of this family,” he said. “I want to continue at this amazing club and amazing family, and I’m very happy and excited for the future.”

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta also expressed his delight in Elneny’s new contract extension, saying: “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.”

Elneny’s new contract is still subject to regulatory processes, but the announcement of his extension is a significant boost for Arsenal, who have had a mixed season so far. The midfielder has been a consistent performer for the team this season, and his experience and work ethic will be invaluable for Arsenal as they continue to push for a European spot.

Elneny’s contract extension is also a testament to the trust that Arsenal’s management has in him. He may not be the most high-profile player in the squad, but his hard work and commitment to the team have not gone unnoticed. Elneny’s professionalism and positive attitude make him a valuable asset to Arsenal both on and off the pitch.
