Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny has now set his sights on the Premier League for his side after the arrival of Gabriel Jesus.
The Gunners went on a fairly impressive run last season, but a late collapse saw them finish outside the top four, losing out to bitter rivals Tottenham.
Disappointment from last season seems to have fueled Arsenal’s ambitions, as Mikel Arteta embarked on a summer spending spree to bolster his squad.

After the addition of Marquinhos, 19, and goalkeeper Matt Turner, 27, Arsenal also brought in Fabio Vieira for £34m from FC Porto.
Perhaps their most noticeable buy was Gabriel Jesus who was bought from Manchester City in a deal believed to be in the region of £43million.
It is Jesus’ signing that has left the likes of Elneny buzzing, and the Egyptian believes Arsenal are genuine title contenders now.
Jesus showed some promise on Friday, July 8 as he struck a brace in his first game in an Arsenal shirt to help his side come from behind to beat Nurnberg in Germany.
After the game, Elneny was adamant teams should fear Arsenal in the coming season.
“I think we pushed really hard to be top four last season but unlucky we didn’t make it.” He said as quoted by The Sun.
“But this season we go again, and we try to win the league, to try to do as much as we can to put this Arsenal football club to the place they deserve.”
Elneny also believes the fact that Jesus has won four Premier League titles at Man City might help Arsenal’s ambitions.
“Big player, experienced player and he won the league with City. He has so many experiences in this league and we’re happy to have him.” He added.
