Elneny has shown he is still an asset to the squad, both on and off the pitch, and the majority of Arsenal fans would now like to see him stay.
Speaking to Sky, Elneny said: : ‘I’ve said before, if Arsenal want me, it’s my club, my family, but it’s not my decision. I have to wait for them to say “Mo, we want you”.
‘Since the first day I have been here, it has felt like a family. We really work like that here, it’s such a beautiful club.’
Elneny added: ‘I always believed. I do my job, I let Mikel do his job too and respect his decisions. He always does the right thing for the team, that’s what I believe.
‘Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka were playing and doing really well, there was never anything to explain, I understood. I just knew I had to be ready, we work as a team and in football everything can change in one second.
‘When you suddenly are playing and the fans can see you, when you feel you play well, when you’re winning, you feel that change. I’m really proud when I hear something good about me, and they see how hard I work for this club.’
