Francis Coquelin pleased with Arsenal progress

Francis Coquelin is pleased with his progress at Arsenal.

The young midfielder join Arsenal 15 months ago from French club Laval.

"I want to reach the first team," Coquelin told

"I think I need to work hard to get there but I think I give 100 per cent everyday so I hope one day I will have a chance.

"I have really enjoyed it [since arriving at Arsenal]. It's really different from my old club; I think I will learn more here.

"It's different technically as well; it's more physical. I came here to play that kind of game.

"I've learnt lots of things like vision, and tactically I have improved; Arsenal work a lot on tactics."
