Arsenal star Mesut Ozil convinced Mohamed Elneny to join Besiktas

Mesut Ozil advised Mohamed Elneny to join Besiktas after falling out of favour at Arsenal under Unai Emery.

Elneny has spent three years at Arsenal, but joined Turkish giants Besiktas on season-long loan during the summer.

The 27-year-old was not in Emery’s plans and revealed he sought advice from Ozil before deciding to make the move to Turkey.
