​Valencia agree £12m fee for Arsenal midfielder Coquelin

Francis Coquelin could be on his way to Valencia after Arsenal agreed a £12m fee with the La Liga club.

The 26-year-old has made just seven Premier League appearances this season, only one of which was as a starter.

When quizzed about Coquelin's future on Tuesday, manager Arsene Wenger said: "It's a possibility [Coquelin's departure] but nothing is decided."

And Sky Sports now claim a deal has been agreed that will see Coquelin move to Spain.

The Frenchman is believed to have rejected offers from West Ham United and Crystal Palace.

Coquelin joined the club's academy from Stade Lavallois in 2008 as a 17-year-old and spent his several seasons on loan before breaking into the first-team halfway through the 2014/15 season.
