Mohamed Elneny has wasted little time becoming one of the most popular Arsenal players amongst the Gunners supporters.

The Egypt international was named Arsenal’s player of the month for March and April after a series of eye-catching displays following his January move.

The 23-year-old put pen to paper on a deal with the Gunners after the north London side agreed an £8m deal with Swiss champions Basel.

Elneny’s impressive strike in a 3-1 defeat by Barcelona in the Champions League was recently named Arsenal’s goal of the 2015/16 season.

And the Egyptian reached another milestone on Sunday night after Elneny eclipsed the 1 million fans mark on Instagram.

Elneny posted the above photo and wrote: “Thanks to all my followers I really appreciate it”

Arsenal finished in second place in the Premier League table and ahead of Tottenham Hotspur thanks to a 4-0 win over Aston Villa on the final day of the season.
