Arsenal have managed to milk a full £12million out of Valencia in exchange for the services of one Francis Coquelin.
The 26-year-old midfielder has signed a four-year deal at the Mestalla, with the Spanish club setting his release clause at a frankly arbitrary €80million.

Over the course of his 160 appearances, Coquelin put everything he had on the line for Arsenal.
It’s just a shame that it didn’t really amount to much, bar an awful lot of screaming, frantic pointing and horrendously mistimed tackles.

Regardless, a shiny groat says Coq looks like a world-beater for Valencia by this time next season.
After all, it’s the Arsenal way.
