‘Why would we sell him’ – Fans react to news of another Arsenal transfer deal on the way
Several Arsenal fans on social media are refusing to support the manager’s decision of letting go of Francis Coquelin.
Reports earlier on Monday suggested that the Frenchman is closing in on a relatively surprising move to Valenicia.
That switch to La Liga would see him reunite with Gabriel, another player whom Wenger offloaded during the summer without the approval of most fans.
With the transfer move for Coquelin looking very likely to happen, a good number of Arsenal fans are wondering whether it’s actually the right decision.
According to these fans, what makes more sense would be to say goodbye to Mohamed Elneny instead.
The Egyptian international has hardly hit the ground running at the Emirates stadium following his move in January 2016.
And for those who are frustrated by Elneny’s recent performances, he is rather the player who deserves to be ditched by Arsene Wenger this month.
Here were their views…
Would rather sell Elneny over Coq any day

If Arsenal keep Mohamed Elneny and sell Francis Coquelin, I will be very disappointed with the club.

Why would we sell Coquelin when he's much more useful than Elneny ffs

Coquelin has more defensive ability than any other midfielder in our team, is 100 times better than Elneny. He plays with heart, passion, is always focused and loves Arsenal.
Perfect man for sub.
…we have many other players to sell ahead of him.

Szscesny better then Cech and Ospina so we sell Szscesny ?
Gabriel better then Holding, Chambers and Mertesacker so we sell Gabriel ?
Perez better then Iwobi, Walcott and Welbeck so we get rid of Perez ?
Coquelin better then Elneny… it continues………
