Gunners star could move on
Francis Coquelin says he is happy at Arsenal for now but will look to leave in January if his route to the first-team is blocked.
The midfielder only signed a new long-term contract at the start of the year but he has so far struggled to play regular football with the Gunners and has been linked with a move away. QPR, Everton and Aston Villa have all been linked with a move for the player, but he is determined to fight for his place and will only look to move on if he is still struggling for action come January. Coquelin "In July, I met the coach and he told me I am a full member of the team and he relies on me," He told L'Equipe. "Looking at who we have signed, they have trust in me. "Alex Song left for Barcelona and they didn't (sign) another defensive midfielder. When I didn't play in the first three matches it made me think about it. But I know I will get an opportunity and I will seize it. "I am 21-years-old, I know I cannot be patient any more. This year is the right season to make a name for myself at Arsenal. "I have given myself six months and then I will take stock. If I see it is blocked, I will go somewhere else. But for now I know I have the qualities to make a name for myself at Arsenal."
