EVEN IF ARSENAL SIGN MOHAMED ELNENY , THEY COULD LOSE HIM FOR A YEAR.
Now arsenal are very much on the verge of signing the Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Elneny from F/C.Basel for just five million pounds.And not seven and a half million pounds as reported earlier . Now even after the deal is a done and dusted matter Arsenal could very well lose him from Arsenal duty for a full year. As he is only in his early twenties he still has to complete a year long national defence duty for Egypt , as it is a must in Egypt all youngsters must do it till they are thirty years old. Only reason to avoid it is he must be excused from military duty. The transfer is taking much longer than usual a the F.A have introduced new laws here that make getting work permits for non E.U. members more difficult. Now Mohamed salah the the other Egyptian footballer who played for Chelsea faced ths same problem, ,but he was excused from doing two years army duty.
