Arsenal duo Francis Coquelin and Mohamed Elneny are among the players being considered by West Ham as manager David Moyes attempts to strengthen his midfield options this month.

Valencia have been interested in Coquelin since Marcelino became the manager in May 2017.

The 26-year-old prepares to move to Spain after rejecting interest from Premier League clubs West Ham United and Crystal Palace.

"It is a possibility, but nothing is decided."

Coquelin was omitted from Sunday's 4 - 2 defeat in the FA Cup third round at Nottingham Forest to ensure it didn't put a stumbling block in the way of his move to West Ham.

The two latest names join the likes of Bournemouth's Harry Arter, Arsenal's Francis Coquelin and Newcastle's Jonjo Shelvey in all being reported as possible recruits at the London Stadium this month. "I don't want to speak about hypothesis", Marcelino said on Tuesday night when asked for his opinion about the Arsenal midfielder.

Speaking about Coquelin's move, he told Sky Sports: 'I'm happy for him because he's going to go to a team that is challenging at the minute in a very hard league to win.

However Wenger did admit that the player could well leave the Emirates during the January transfer window.

Coquelin has only started one Premier League game this season.
