‘This is an indescribable feeling’

Mohamed Elneny says it is an “indescribable feeling” to sign for Arsenal.

The central midfielder became the first Egyptian to join the club when his transfer from FC Basel was completed on Thursday morning.

Elneny is delighted to be an Arsenal player - and the 23-year-old has promised the fans that he will make a positive contribution in north London.

“It is an indescribable feeling, I am really glad of course,” he told Arsenal Player. “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.

“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.

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

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