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.

    Harsh. Coquelin did us a world of good when he came back in January 2015. He was a good tackler and intercepter for a while and then he started to slide higher up the pitch and ended up being a liability. He was probably poorly coached. But 12 mil is nothing

    • Beano says:

      I agree. Valencia got a pretty good deal.
      I’d argue he’s better than Xhaka and/ or Elneny and Xhaka would probably go for 20 million (Elneny 12-15 mil).
