Sampdoria are reportedly keen on signing Mohamed Elneny on a season-long loan deal from Arsenal.
According to TuttomercatoWeb, the Serie A club are interested in boosting their squad with the Egypt international who spent last season on loan at Besiktas.
Elneny had been largely tipped with a move back to the Turksih Super Lig club where he made 36 appearances across all competitions.
The 28-year-old featured the whole 90 minutes in the Gunners Community Shield win over Liverpool last weekend, but reportedly isn’t part of Mikel Arteta’s long-term plans.
Sampdoria, who are coached by former Premier League winning manager Claudio Ranieri, finished last season in 15th place on the Serie A standings.
Elneny has two goals in 90 appearances for Arsenal and is contracted to the North London club until 2022.
