West Ham considering Arsenal duo Francis Coquelin and Mohamed Elneny

West Ham considering Arsenal duo Francis Coquelin and Mohamed Elneny

Coquelin has played close to 160 games for Arsenal but has managed just one Premier League game under his belt this season; surprisingly he has never scored a goal for Arsenal in his career.

A handful of English clubs, including West Ham United, were thought to also be interested in the Frenchman.

Arsenal duo Francis Coquelin and Mohamed Elneny are among the players being considered by West Ham as manager David Moyes attempts to strengthen his midfield options this month.

"It's a possibility but nothing is decided".




"No, we have had no contact with West Ham."

Valencia have reached an agreement to sign Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin, according to reports. "I don't want to speak about hypothesis", Marcelino said on Tuesday night when asked for his opinion about the Arsenal midfielder.

"He is a fantastic player with lots of potential still to come, he is a joy to coach and he is a good teammate for all our players and he works very hard. It's very hard to talk about those who aren't". The rumblings today are that Coquelin has agreed to a four-and-a-half year contract with Los Che, and the move will be formalized within 24 hours.

Elneny joined the Gunners in January 2016, but has never really had a sustained spell in the first team, making only 30 Premier League appearances in that time.
