The 26-year-old, who joined the North London club as a youth player in 2008, made 160 appearances for Arsene Wenger's side but struggled to get first-team opportunities this season.

Wright was not the only one both pleased and surprised at the fact that Arsenal let Coquelin leave, with former Arsenal and Barcelona star Thierry Henry also talking about the potential transfer."I'm happy for him because he's going to go to a team that is challenging at the minute in a very hard league to win, said the France and Arsenal legend".

It was an unexpected way to see Coquelin leave.

Wenger suggested rising star Ainsley Maitland-Niles will eventually help to fill the void left by Coquelin's departure. "I let him go". Arsenal are now without a host of first-team options in midfield and suffered a further setback as Jack Wilshere went off against Chelsea with an ankle injury.

Cancelo feels he hasn't been getting sufficient game time which could affect his chances of playing at the World Cup and he wants to return to Spain with Los Che also wanting him back.

"I believe that the players are doing a great job". He is a defensive midfielder, basically. At the moment we have Monreal and Kolasinac injured and they will come back.

"There will be an opening for him in midfield".

Maitland-Niles has been backed to replace Coquelin.
