The Egyptian midfielder, currently on loan at Turkish side Besiktas, is believed to have already expressed a desire for a new challenge.
AC Milan are reportedly interested in a permanent move for Arsenal loanee Mohamed Elneny
Reports in Italy suggest that new Milan boss Stefano Pioli believes that the 27-year-old’s strength could prove crucial in reviving the club’s European aspirations.
However, Elneny is yet to impress since being shipped out to Turkey in the summer – and had also struggled for regular game time under Unai Emery at the Emirates last term.
Pioli is already under pressure at Milan after a torrid start to the new campaign plunged them into 13th spot and saw predecessor Marco Giampaolo axed.
The club have suffered four defeats from their first seven league matches so far.
The 27-year-old had made 89 appearances for Arsenal before being shipped out this summer
And 53-year-old Pioli has purportedly identified his side’s midfield options as a key concern – and favours Elneny’s attributes over current stars Ismael Bennacer and Lucas Biglia.
The former Arsenal man had been sent off on his debut for Besiktas and promptly received a three-match ban from the Turkish Football Federation.
Elneny made 89 appearances for the Gunners after joining them from Basel in 2016 for £7million.
