Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger revealed on Wednesday that a deal was likely to be concluded, with Coquelin having grown frustrated by his lack of game time.
"He goes to Valencia, he didn't get enough games," Wenger said following his side's 0-0 EFL Cup semi-final draw with Chelsea.
"I let him go."
Coquelin has only made one start in the Premier League this season.
