Galatasaray have made contact with Arsenal to ask about the possibility of signing midfielder Mohamed Elneny.
The Turkish giants have until the close of their domestic transfer window on Wednesday to conclude a deal for the 29-year-old.
Elneny, who joined Arsenal from Swiss club Basel in 2016, has just a year remaining on his contract in north London.
Arsenal might be tempted by the prospect of trying to recoup a small transfer fee, rather than seeing him potentially leave for free next summer.
The Egypt international has previous experience of playing in Turkey having spent the 2019/20 season on loan at Besiktas.
After falling out of favour under former Arsenal boss Unai Emery, he featured 41 times in all competitions last season, in Mikel Arteta’s first full campaign in charge at the Emirates Stadium.
Should he move to Galatasaray, he would join a host of players with Premier League experience.
