Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny has dismissed speculation he could leave the Gunners this season.
Speculation had claimed Galatasaray were keen on signing the 25-year-old this summer, but Elneny says he is going nowhere.
“I am staying at Arsenal this season,” Elneny said via Standard Sport. “I am 100 per cent focused and will give my best to the club day after day.”
Elneny also feels that his performance against Chelsea in the Community Shield on Sunday was one of his best since he joined the club from FC Basel in 2016.
“There has been a lot of criticism recently and I wanted to prove that I deserve to play for a big team like Arsenal. That was my best game for Arsenal,” he added.
“Winning the Community Shield gives us momentum ahead of the new season. We players talked about the importance of this game.”

Elneny made 22 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal last season and during his time at the club he has proved he is an important squad member.
While Arsene Wenger has confirmed he needs to trim the squad, Elneny is not believed to be a player whose place in the first team is under threat.
Furthermore, with Aaron Ramsey a doubt for Friday night’s opening Premier League game against Leicester City, Elneny could be given another chance to impress after shining at Wembley.
