Fans Are All Saying The Same About Francis Coquelin's Valencia Move

In his nine-and-a-half years at Arsenal, Coquelin has made 160 appearances and was part of two FA Cup winning sides, and we wish him luck for the rest of his career.

Valencia have completed the signing of French midfielder Francis Coquelin from Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Francis Coquelin will be leaving the club this.

A new contract signed a year ago means Arsenal collect a sizeable fee.

Speaking about Coquelin's move, he told Sky Sports: 'I'm happy for him because he's going to go to a team that is challenging at the minute in a very hard league to win.

The former France Under-21 worldwide, who has yet to make a senior appearance for his country, says he spoke to several of his Arsenal colleagues - including Spain global Santi Cazorla - before committing to a move to LaLiga.

"They all told me that Valencia is a great city and the club is big, so I'm very grateful to be here", he said. "I spoke on the phone, we had a good contact, a good conversation, so I am very happy to be here today", Coquelin said.

While he was once considered a mainstay in the Arsenal side, especially after his loan spell at Charlton Athletic was cut short, the 26-year-old has only to make one Premier League start this season. I think the players are doing a great job'. "He had an opportunity and I let him go".
