Arsenal Sign Francis Coquelin… but he's only 17…

Young Guns has reviewed his ability after his trial and said...

Coquelin is a rugged, strong, aggressive defensive midfielder. Blessed with a super passing range as well as all the combative qualities you would expect from a holding central player. He plys his trade for Stade Lavallois and has already featured on various occasions for the Reserves, after being promoted from the Under 18s.

In addition, today’s Daily Mail has a quick snippet:

FC Laval’s midfielder Francis Coquelin, 17, is also expected to join Arsenal after a successful trial earlier this month.

    Didn’t we bring him in the same time as Amaury Bischoff? He (again) is supposed to be a good talent but like everyone said, he’s young. He’s a Defensive Mid but isnt scared to get forward and shoot, can do so with either foot. Regular reserve team player. Probably will end up going out on loan.
