A DEAD body has been found in Arsenal star Mohamed Elneny’s house in Egypt.
Police are now investigating after the grim discovery, which was reportedly made by Elneny’s father.
Italian newspaper Gazetta reports that Elneny’s dad immediately notified the police after he discovered the “lifeless body inside his son’s home”.
The house, close to the city of Mahalla Al-Kubra, is currently under construction.
Police are yet to formally identify the deceased and it is not known whether it was a criminal act or an accident.
The website 24.ae is reporting that the body was found “in the patio” at the home.
ELNENY MISSES FRIENDLY
Midfielder Elneny missed Arsenal’s friendly today against Lyon, and has been rumoured to be set to leave the club.
In three years with the North London giants, the Egypt international has made 89 appearances, scoring just two goals.
SunSport recently reported that he was believed to be one of three players offered to Crystal Palace in the hope of luring Wilfried Zaha to the Emirates.
Calum Chambers and Carl Jenkinson were the other two makeweights in the deal.

Arsenal value the fringe players at £40m, which would effectively double their offer for Palace’s Ivory Coast star, 26.
And they will point out that deal would reduce Manchester United’s cut of the Zaha cash.
Palace paid just £6m when they bought him back in 2015 but agreed a sell-on clause which entitles United to 25 per cent of any future profit.
