Arsenal have confirmed that central midfielder Mohamed Elneny has now suffered an ankle ligament damage to his left leg.
The Egyptian international picked up the injury during Arsenal’s 4-1 victory over London rivals West Ham United on Sunday afternoon.
The Gunners have since announced that the former Basel star will hopefully represent the club again this season.
Arsenal have revealed the latest on Elneny’s ankle injury:
“We are hoping that Mo will [be] available for Arsenal again this season and we are keeping in regular contact with the Egyptian Football Association,” read a statement on the club’s official website.
“The midfielder was injured just before half-time during Sunday’s 4-1 home victory over West Ham United. Further updates will be made in due course.”
The 25-year-old, who joined the Emirates Stadium side in January 2016 from Basel, has scored twice in 69 matches in all competitions.
