Arsenal have sold holding midfielder Francis Coquelin to Valencia for a reported £12m fee.
Coquelin was a massive surprise for the Gunners on his return from a loan spell at Charlton a few seasons back. Unfortunately for club and player, he was never able to recapture the form he showed in that breakout half season and he certainly never improved upon it. He could always be counted on to put in a shift and play aggressively but his penchant for reckless play and ill-timed dismissals as well as marginal passing ability saw him marginalized since the arrival of Granit Xhaka. Wenger has mooted Ainsley Maitland-Niles as a potential replacement in the squad once Sead Kolasinac has recovered from his current injury freeing AMN to move into his more natural holding midfielder role.
