Frenchman has been a revelation in midfield since his return from Charlton.
Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin has signed a new contract with the club according to a report by the Sun.
The Frenchman’s deal was thought to end this summer and even last month it appeared he would be allowed to leave after being farmed out to Charlton Athletic on-loan with his Arsenal future looking non-existant.
However, Coquelin has been a revelation since his return from the Championship side, most notably during Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Manchester City, and his good form seems to have been rewarded with an improved deal.
The report claims the 23-year-old will put pen to paper on a four year deal with a wage that could reach as high as £40,000 per week.
Arsene Wenger revealed in his press conference earlier today that he was “99 per cent” certain Coquelin would pen an improved contract at the Emirates.

This comes just one week after the Daily Mirror claimed the midfielder would make the club sweat on a new contract and weigh up his options before committing his future to the North London club…
However, it now appears Coquelin will remain with Arsenal, whilst the Sun also claims that the Gunners will also offer a new deal to Nacho Monreal who has continued to impress in defence this season.
It remains to be seen, as of yet, whether or not Coquelin’s new deal will cancel the need for a defensive midfield acquisition come the summer.
