Coquelin linked with Ligue 2 move

According to France Football, midfielder Francis Coquelin is in advanced talks with Ligue 2 side Tours FC.

The 23 year old, who spent last season on loan at Freiburg, is surplus to requirements at Arsenal and more than likely available for a nominal fee this summer.

It’s something of a step-down for a player who looked for a time as if he might well forge a place in Arsene Wenger’s squad after impressing on a season long loan at Lorient.

However, after 43 appearances in the red and white, it looks as if his Arsenal career has come to an end.

It does look as if we’re going to get our Coq out at last.

Bon chance to him.

Fan of Arsenal, Robert Pires and most everything to do with rum and whiskey. Smiter of those that ought to be smote.
