Gunners pair going nowhere

Mohamed Elneny and Olivier Giroud have again confirmed that they plan to stay put at Arsenal this summer and fight for their place.

It looked like 25-year-old Egypt international midfielder, Elneny, would be departing the Emirates Stadium as he appears to be behind Francis Coquelin, Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in boss Arsene Wenger's midfield pecking order, while the return of Jack Wilshere will no doubt further hamper his first-team hopes.

Leicester made a £10million offer for his signature last month, but Elneny snubbed the chance of a move and he has now spoken out to insist his future is with Arsenal.

The January 2016 signing from Basel said: "I am staying at Arsenal this season. I am 100 per cent focused and will give my best to the club day after day.

"There has been a lot of criticism recently and I wanted to prove that I deserve to play for a big team like Arsenal. That was my best game for Arsenal."

Meanwhile, Giroud, has also insisted that he has no desire to leave the club, despite the record signing of his France international team-mate Alexandre Lacazette threatening his place in the side.

He said: "I feel good. I’m an Arsenal player, I have two years on my contract at least. I am really focused on the team, on what I have to do when the manager calls on me.

"It’s up to the manager to decide. I’m here to do my best, as always, to make the manager doubt his decisions, give my best for the team, always with the aim of winning the Premier League this season."
