Reported Arsenal target John Souttar has high praise for Francis Coquelin on Twitter

Emirates Stadium

The Dundee United star is a fan of the Frenchman.

Dundee United defender and midfielder John Souttar is a player being linked with several teams this summer.

It was reported in April by the Daily Mail that Celtic were keen on the player and then came links of a move to the Premier League. Arsenal were also linked with a move for Souttar earlier this month. The Mail commented that Arsenal scout and former Leeds United boss Brian McDermott was in the stands watching Souttar during a 1-1 draw between Dundee United and St Johnstone earlier this month.

It would seem that Souttar is also a big fan of one Arsenal player. He Tweeted this message during the FA Cup final yesterday, which Arsenal of course went on to win 4-0.

Coquelin has been the revelation of the season since returning to Arsenal from a loan spell at Charlton Athletic. He has established himself in the Arsenal first-team and is looking like the player they have needed in the middle of the park for some years now.

Souttar is just one of many who are currently impressed by his performances. Who knows? Maybe one day they will get to play together for The Gunners.
