Mohamed Elneny has revealed his aim of becoming an Arsenal legend someday, just like Thierry Henry.

The Egyptian international has not cemented a regular place in the Arsenal first team since arriving in the winter transfer window of 2016.

However, the 24-year-old has shown his competence in the 19 appearances he has managed in the last 12 months.

Elneny has high hopes nonetheless as he sets his sight on a legendary status at the North-London club on the long term.

"I want to be a legend at this club," Elneny told the Daily Mail.

"Like Thierry Henry. I mean, obviously not exactly like him. I have my own personality, my own character. I want to be different to anyone that's gone before.

"But since I got here, I've always had that in mind. I wanted to become an Arsenal legend.

"It's been a great year for me. Playing in England, at one of the best five clubs in the world.

"Since I arrived, I've enjoyed the whole experience. Not just playing for the club, but the country itself. The friends I'm making, the supporters. The whole atmosphere around the football. It's been one of the best years of my life.

"In Basel I gained experience. But when I came to England, and Arsenal, I adapted so quickly because I felt straight away it was like a family, a whole big family. You are someone new, but they embrace you. They bring you in.

"Everyone loves each other. When you feel like people love you, and they want you around, that makes you adapt quickly, you enjoy being there."

Elneny has been unavailable for Arsenal since January 2. This is due to the fact that he is currently representing his national side at the ongoing 2017 African Cup of Nations.
