REPORTS: Arsenal Launch £18m Bid For Spanish Star Juan Mata

By on June 27, 2011

Arsenal have opened talks over signing Spanish u21 star Juan Mata, reports the Daily Mail.

The Mail claims Arsene Wenger is ready to splash the cash and has identified Mata as his main summer signing by submitting a club record £18m bid for the player.

It seems Arsenal officials have already opened talks with the players father and agent over a move and it would be seen as a major coup should he seal the deal.

Mata, who can play on the left or centre of midfield, is being tracked by clubs all over Europe including Liverpool and Barcelona. He was part of Spain u21 side that just won the European Championships and some are suggestion he could be the replacement for Cesc Fabregas who seems destined to move to Barcelona.

    Liverpool should bid for him quickly, and stop messing around with these useless English wingers off Villa that would probably cost about the same.Though the Spanish market not opened till another 4 days.

      Fully agree. If Liverpool miss out on players such as Mata and sign the likes of Adam and Downing instead, for me they lose all credibility as wanting success and to become a top team again.

      Wenger should not stop at making a bid. He should go on & seal the deal as quickly as possible. He should also sign Alvarez, Gervinho, Chamberlain, Parker, & Samba to bring a sigh of relief to the Arsenal fans, some of whom have started calling for his head.

    God way too fantasy mangers out there with no concept of money

    Samba, Enrique, Alvarez, Mata would all fit in our budget of 60 million not to mention if we sold Fabregas
    Then with that money we could buy a defensive midfielder or striker
