A dead body has been found by Mohamed Elneny's father in the Arsenal player's house in his home nation of Egypt.

The house is located close to the Egyptian city of Mahalla Al-Kubra and is currently unoccupied due to being under construction.

According to Italian newspaper Gazetta, Elneny's dad found the body lying on the ground before immediately contacting authorities of the discovery. 

The body has not yet been identified, with authorities also unable to determine whether the incident was a criminal act or an accident.

Egyptian security forces have opened an investigation to determine whether the case has criminal implications and are set to undertake an autopsy of the corpse.

Elneny, who has been heavily linked with a move away from the Gunners, has yet to make a statement in regards to the incident.

This latest incident comes in a string of sensational Arsenal related news after Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac were subjected to an armed carjacking late last week.
