Arsenal have secured their first signing of the January transfer window by completing a deal for FC Basel midfielder Mohamed Elneny.
The 23-year-old midfielder spent three years with the Swiss club, making over 90 league appearances and winning three consecutive Super League titles.
He featured 28 times in all competitions in the first half of this season, scoring six goals.
The midfielder was in London on Wednesday to complete the formalities on a four-and-a-half year contract, having already undergone a medical with the current Premier League leaders.
Manager Arsene Wenger had confirmed that the deal was done following the Gunners’ 3-3 draw with Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday night.
“He has joined us and we will see if he can qualify for Sunday,” the Frenchman said.
