Arsenal flop set for Emirates stay after terrible season

Published Add your comment

Arsenal look like they will be forced into keeping Francis Coquelin for another season, unless they can ship him out on loan again in the summer.

The 22-year-old Frenchman has been on loan at German club SC Freiburg this year, a move which was originally expected to be made permanent providing it was successful. However it’s been anything but and now Le 10 Sport, citing L’Equipe, insists that the Bundesliga outfit do not want to keep him.

Despite being tipped for a bright future in some quarters, Coquelin has failed to impress on his travels this season, and in January was voted by German publication Bild as the third worst Bundesliga signing of the year. Some reports even claimed that the loan deal would be cut early, and that the midfielder would finish the campaign at the Emirates.

However it now looks as though Arsene Wenger will receive the player on the initially agreed date, and that he could be an Arsenal player again for next season.
