With his contract expiring at the end of June, impressive midfielder Mohamed Elneny has announced that he will leave Arsenal this summer.

The Egyptian international is the longest-standing player at the club, having joined in 2016 under former manager Arsene Wenger.

He moved to the English club from Swiss side FC Basel and has played under three managers at the London club, including Unai Emery and Mikel Arteta.

On Friday, the 31-year-old confirmed that his time with the Gunners had ended, and he hoped to continue his professional career elsewhere, Tribal Football reports.

In a chat with TribalFootball, Elneny stated that he will continue to support the Gunners. Elneny said in a video posted on X on Friday.

"Gooners, I'm here today to send you a message, to say goodbye and thank you for everything you've done for me,"
"The love, the support and the kindness. I'm really going to miss you so much and you'll be in my heart forever."

Arsenal still have a chance of winning the Premier League title on Sunday, but they will hope for a West Ham victory over league leaders Manchester City, while they must defeat Everton.

In his nine seasons at Arsenal, Elneny has so far made 161 appearances in all competitions, scoring 6 goals.

He helped the club to 1 FA Cup and 2 Community Shield titles.

Haaland fires strong message to Arsenal

Sports Brief earlier reported that Erling Haaland delivered a concise yet potent message to Arsenal as Manchester City edges closer to securing another Premier League title.

Following their victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday night, City find themselves on the brink of an unprecedented fourth consecutive league triumph.

Haaland's brace against the Lilywhites propelled the defending champions to the top of the league standings, usurping the Gunners in the process, ahead of the season's final round of fixtures.
