Anyone who had not really been watching the Arsenal games all that closely this season and then watched us blow Aston Villa away in the FA cup final yesterday could have been forgiven for thinking that Arsene Wenger had finally seen sense on the defensive midfield situation and spent some big money in the summer or January transfer windows.
But as we know, Francis Coqwuelin was already an Arsenal player, it was just that he never played or did not impress on his rare chances. After a storming second half of the season, however, the Frenchman has become a fixture at the heart of our team and his performance at Wembley yesterday was even better than usual.
So maybe Arsene Wenger has decided that he does not really need a Morgan Schneiderlin or an Arturo Vidal because Coquelin will be our first choice. But with the risk of an injury and the number of games the Gunners will play next season, we still need cover and according to a Metro report, the Frenchman is going for the Swansea City star Ki Sung-Yeung.
The report claims that we have already begun talks with the Welsh club and they are ready to accept £15 million for the South Korean. Great news for Coquelin but would you prefer Arsenal to go for someone else?
