    El and back

    Arsenal star Mohamed Elneny has agreed a new contract to stay at the Emirates.

    Why would he?

    Former Manchester City ace David James questioned why Gabriel Jesus would want to leave the Etihad for Arsenal.

    James told Genting Casino: “If you look at Man City players’ appearances this season, Bernardo Silva and Rodri have played 30-plus Premier League games, but all the players in that attacking line-up have played around 25 games, so they’re not playing every week.

    "Pep [Guardiola’s] rotation has worked perfectly in the sense that they won the Premier League again. I’d imagine [Erling] Haaland would fit into that mold, he’s not going to play every game. Also, with his injuries, there are question marks over whether he is physically capable of playing all the games.

    “That being said, Jesus will have a shared role if he stays at Manchester City. This isn’t a buy-a-player-and-use-him-all-the-time situation, so there is still room for Jesus and why would he want to leave?

    "You’ve got the best team in England over the past five years, so would he risk it by moving somewhere else to Arsenal, who aren’t even in the Champions League, or would he rather stay at Man City and try to get the Holy Grail, which is the Champions League?”

    More from Nelson

    Arsenal legend Robin van Persie is a coach with Feyenoord's Under-16s and has a hand with the first team, occasionally helping with training.

    It is there Van Persie gave the Gunners' loanee Reiss Nelson a masterclass in movement in front of goal.
