Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hinted that the club will complete their first winter signing this week.

Basel midfielder Mohamed Elneny is expected to join the Gunners this month after he underwent a medical and agreed personal terms over a £5m transfer.

Wenger has now admitted that his side are likely to announce their first capture by Monday, but refused to let out the name of the player.

"We hope to announce a player in the next 24 to 48 hours," he told reporters. "I don't need to tell you the name. After that we will see [about other deals]."

Elneny has earned over 35 caps with the Egyptian national side.
