Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has talked about how he influenced Mohamed Elneny’s departure from the Emirates Stadium to Istanbul giants Besiktas.

Elneny joined Besiktas last summer on a one-year loan deal after struggling to get playing time at Arsenal.

The 27-year-old midfielder played only a total of 17 matches last season for the Gunners under former manager Unai Emery.
