according to some media reports, Francis Coquelin has agreed to a contract with Valencia.The 26-year-old defensive midfielder has fallen down the pecking order at The Emirates this season and made just one start in the Premier League.
Arsene Wenger admitted that it was “a possibility” Coquelin could be leaving the club this month but ruled out a switch to West Ham, who had been linked with the Frenchman.
The Arsenal Francis Coquelin midfielder is expected to finalise his move before the weekend as the clubs discuss a transfer worth £10.5million.
Valencia had proposed an initial loan deal until the end of the season with a fee of £2.6m to navigate Financial Fair Play regulations.
the La Liga side were in pole position for the 26-year-old ahead of West Ham.
The Frenchman has been at Arsenal since joining from Stade Lavallois as a 17-year-old in July 2008 following a successful trial.
He spent loan spells away at Lorient, Freiburg and Charlton before eventually becoming a first-team fixture in the second half of the 2014-15 season.
Coquelin has gone on to make a total of 159 first-team appearances under Arsene Wenger but has never found the back of the net.]]>
