Arsenal's Arsene Wenger says Coquelin will join Valencia

Arsenal's Arsene Wenger says Coquelin will join Valencia

Coquelin, who is understood to have moved for a fee of around £12million, only signed a new contract with Arsenal a year ago.

Coquelin, 26, arrived at Arsenal from the French side Laval in 2008 and went on to make 160 first-team appearances.

It is claimed that this move could be finalised within 24 hours which would spell the end of Francis Coquelin's lengthy spell at the club. Arsenal are now without a host of first-team options in midfield and suffered a further setback as Jack Wilshere went off against Chelsea with an ankle injury. Now with his move to Valencia all but done and dusted, Arsenal icon Ian Wright has lauded the Gunners, even going on to praise the management.

He started four of Arsenal's Europa League games this season but has made just seven Premier League appearances and only one as a starter.

"I nearly regret not having come before".

"They all said that Valencia is a great city and a big club, so I am very happy to be here", he told the club's official website. Don't even think about asking how I heard about the unorthodox, mystifying art form.

"I respect and trust Cazorla's word a lot, and it was a plus point for me deciding to sign for Valencia CF".

Valencia travel to Deportivo La Coruna in La Liga on Saturday, with Coquelin saying: "Of course I'm ready to play, I'm here to help the team".
