Arsenal new boy targets sensational TREBLE this season

first_img1 Mohamed Elneny is aiming to help Arsenal pull off a remarkable treble after completing his move to the Gunners.The Egyptian midfielder sealed a £5m switch from Basel on Thursday, becoming Arsene Wenger’s first signing of the January transfer window.He joins an Arsenal side sitting top of the Premier League, in the fourth round of the FA Cup and in the last 16 of the Champions League, and he is eager to make a major impact for the club.“I am hoping that we win the Premier League and cup this season, and the Champions League as well,” he told Arsenal Player.“Arsenal is one of the world’s greatest teams, and I am very keen to participate positively with my new team and to give my best for the team and for myself.“Arsenal is one of those teams that everyone enjoys watching and of course I would love to play for such a great team. It is an indescribable feeling (to have signed).“Mr Wenger is a highly-respected manager and one of the world’s best managers; it is my honour to be trained under his management.“I would like to tell (the fans) that, although you have not seen much of me, I promise I will contribute positively with the team.”While the best Elneny could hope for is a place on the bench for Sunday’s trip to Stoke, in-form midfielder Aaron Ramsey is set for a key role.The Wales international has scored in his last two matches, including his side’s opener in the entertaining 3-3 draw at Anfield, and he admits he is confident about his sharpness in and around the penalty area.“I am feeling confident in there,” said Ramsey.“I know my team-mates have the ability to pick my runs out and give that final ball for me to get on to it.“It was a good ball from Joel (Campbell) again so I was delighted with that goal.”The game saw Olivier Giroud score twice, meaning he has found the net in the last 11 away matches, taking his tally to 18 for the season and 12 in the league.“It shows character. Overall he is improving game-by-game and that is very positive,” Wenger said.“This team has quality and spirit. I could smell every time we went into the final third we could be dangerous.”They will need all that attacking intent at the Britannia Stadium where they have not won in five visits, including three defeats.Ramsey added: “We have a tough game coming up against Stoke – we haven’t found it easy the last few times we have been there but we will be looking to get back to winning ways and get back on another run.” Mohamed Elneny last_img read more
