LONDON (AP) — Egypt midfielder Mohamed Elneny could make his Arsenal debut at Stoke on Sunday after completing his move to the Premier League from Swiss club FC Basel.

The 23-year-old Elneny's signing comes with Arsenal at the top of the league on goal difference after being held to a 3-3 draw at Liverpool on Wednesday.

Arsenal is seeking its first league title since 2004. Elneny arrives after winning three consecutive Swiss league titles at Basel, which he joined from El Mokawloon in Egypt.

After the Liverpool game, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said Elneny "has joined us and we will see if he can qualify for Sunday."

Arsenal says Elneny's transfer remains "subject to the completion of regulatory processes."
