He has had to give up the bench this season and has barely featured in the Premier League.

And Mirror that report chief Toon Eddie Howe are targeting the 29-year-old in a deal next month.

His contract is due to expire in June next year, but the Magpies want to put him in a cheap move six months before that.

Elneny is one of five players Howe is said to have put on his wishlist ahead of the new transfer window.

Tottenham’s Joe Rodon, Bournemouth’s Lloyd Kelly, Lille’s Sven Botman and Borussia Monchengladbach’s Mathias Ginter are the other four targets reported.

Howe has built confidence that the Warblers have what it takes to stay in the Premier League after guiding the club to its first win of the season last weekend.

And by showing that the club is not a certificate of dismissal, players will be more inclined to join Howe’s revolution.

Turkish duo Galatasaray and Besiktas have also been linked with a move for Egypt International Elneny.

The midfielder spent the 2019/20 season on loan with Istanbul-based Besiktas.

He played 36 times while on loan in Turkey, and is reported to be on the verge of returning in the summer until negotiations break down.

But Elneny has played only 149 minutes in the Premier League this season, and now it seems destined to move on from Arsenal in the near future.

It remains to be seen whether that will be with a discounted fee in January, or a free transfer in the summer.
