Arsenal star Mohamed Elneny has revealed Mesut Ozil told him to leave the Gunners this summer and join Besiktas.

Elneny recently joined the Turkish outfit on a season-long loan as Unai Emery brought in Dani Ceballos in midfield.

The Egyptian had fallen out of favour at the Emirates, just like Ozil seems to have now done under Emery.

And now Elneny has revealed that he spoke to Ozil while making his decision about leaving the Premier League giants during the summer.

“Mesut is an amazing man,” Elneny told Milliyet. “He is a person that I really care about.

“We had wonderful moments together at Arsenal.

“Of course, I spoke with him before my decision to come to Besiktas. Mesut knows the country very well.

“He advised me to join Besiktas. After I completed my move to the club, I called him and invited him here.”

Elneny was signed for Arsenal by former manager Arsene Wenger, costing the Gunners around £12.5million.

He was brought in from Swiss side Basel and made 89 Arsenal appearances across all competitions in four seasons.

And Wenger believes Elneny is a real asset to whichever team he is part of.

Wenger said: “First and foremost, Elneny is a modern day midfielder.

“He will work hard for the team. He has a great technique. His physical attributes are also very important.

“His passes are also very direct and will help the team in attacking areas.”

Arsenal return to Premier League action with a trip to Watford on Sunday (4.30pm).

They have won two of their four games so far, gaining seven points and sitting fifth.

Arsenal’s only defeat came at the hands of table-toppers Liverpool while they were held to a draw by north London rivals Tottenham.
