Valencia have reached an agreement to sign Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin, according to reports.

The 26-year-old defensive midfielder has fallen down the pecking order at The Emirates this season and made just one start in the Premier League.

Arsene Wenger admitted that it was “a possibility” Coquelin could be leaving the club this month, but ruled out a switch to West Ham, who had been linked with the Frenchman.

Cadena Ser reported Valencia’s interest on Monday with a reported fee of between €10million and €12million for the player, who has made more than 100 Premier League appearances.

French outlet RMC Sport claim a four-and-a-half year deal has been struck between the two clubs with an announcement expected within the next 24 hours.
