Marseille could reportedly be keen on signing Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny before the transfer window closes in France later this month (via Sport Witness).
The transfer window may be closed in England but business can still be completed in the rest of Europe.
Premier League sides still have the option to sell players to the rest of continental Europe in the next few weeks and it seems as if Arsenal are keen to do just that.
The likes of David Ospina and Joel Campbell are expected to leave but they could be joined by another.
Reports in France and England suggest that Marseille are keen on bringing in another central midfielder before the deadline and that Mohamed Elneny is high up on the list.
The Ligue 1 club’s director of football, Andoni Zubizarreta is apparently a big fan of the player who joined Arsenal from FC Basel in January 2016.

Marseille have money to spend after selling André Franck Zambo Anguissa to Premier League rivals Fulham for €30 million.
It would be a strange decision for Arsenal to lose Mohamed Elneny right now. The Egyptian international didn’t feature on Sunday but still has a lot to offer to this squad. Should Elneny leave, the Gunners would have just Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka, Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira as the senior players to pick from in the centre of midfield.
