Spanish giants Valencia join Coquelin race

Francis Coquelin of Arsenal is chased by Pedro Obiang of West Ham United during the Carabao Cup Quarter Final match between Arsenal and West Ham United at Emirates Stadium on December 19

Coquelin won two FA Cups with the club appearing in the 2015 and 2017 finals but the re-emergence of Jack Wilshere as well as competition from Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny has forced Coquelin to seek a move overseas.

Arsene Wenger has admitted Francis Coquelin may leave Arsenal this January - but insists there has been no approach from West Ham.

Valencia have been interested in Coquelin since Marcelino became the manager in May 2017. "It would not be for West Ham", Wenger said in his press conference ahead of the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea.

German playmaker, Mesut Ozil and English midfielder, Jack Wilshere are also yet to sign new deals with Arsenal with Gunners boss, Arsene Wenger according to goal.com, previously suggesting that there are differences in the financial expectations between the parties involved.

West Ham are looking for options to strengthen their midfield this transfer window and Mohamed Elneny is on their shortlist.

Comedian Jerry Van Dyke dies at 86
Van Dyke's wife, Shirley, told TMZ she was by his side when her husband passed away at their Arkansas ranch on Friday afternoon. He also played in Las Vegas, at Playboy Clubs, and on cruise ships in a stage show in the 60s.

"I do not want to anticipate something that is not done".

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. However, a move to Valencia seems imminent with reports claiming a four and a half year deal for Coquelin valued close to £10.5 million.

The Spanish club have since dropped a strong hint that the announcement of Coquelin's arrival is imminent after tweeting an image of a suitcase with the Frenchman's initials on the front.

Coquelin has only played 844 minutes in the Premier League this season.
