Swiss side Basel have confirmed that midfielder Mohamed Elneny was absent from training today and, therefore, could be making a transfer in the coming days.
“There could be a transfer in the coming days," reads a statement on the Clubs website which suggest that a deal is imminent.
The Gunners will pay 5 million euros to Swiss champions Basel, in a fee that could rise to 7 million euros.
Elneny has reportedly already had his Arsenal medical, while Arsene Wenger even cracked a joke about the player after the 1-0 win over Newcastle.
