Francis Coquelin has spent almost a decade at Arsenal
Valencia are set to sign French midfielder Francis Coquelin from Arsenal, Arsene Wenger has confirmed.
The 26-year-old leaves for Spain in what is expected to be a £12m deal, having joined the Gunners as a youth player in 2008.
He made 105 Premier League appearances and signed a new deal at Arsenal in January 2017.
Wenger confirmed the transfer after Arsenal's Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg draw with Chelsea on Wednesday.
"He goes to Valencia because he didn't get enough games with us this season and he had an opportunity. I let him go," said Wenger.
