Arsenal exodus begins as La Liga side agree deal for Coquelin

The report added that West Ham's interest comes as the duo have been used sparingly by manager Arsene Wenger in the Premier League this season, with Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey his preferred pairing in midfield.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger confirmed at a news conference on Tuesday that Coquelin could leave the club after almost a decade, having joined as a 17-year-old in 2008.

"[Coquelin leaving is] a possibility but nothing is decided".

And in other transfer news, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte refused to rule out a move for West Ham striker Andy Carroll.

Valencia are said to be interested in signing the tenacious French midfielder and are said to be preparing an offer of £12 million to take him away from Arsenal.

Speaking about Coquelin's move, he told Sky Sports: '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. "It's very hard to talk about those who aren't". I am very satisfied with the players I have and the performance we did today. 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.

However Wenger did admit that the player could well leave the Emirates during the January transfer window.

The Spanish club have since dropped a strong hint that the announcement of Coquelin's arrival is imminent after tweeting an image of a suitcase with the Frenchman's initials on the front.

Elneny has participated in only five Premier League games this season, including only two starts.
