Arsenal are considering a daring and bold bid for Chelsea playmaker Juan Mata after securing a place in the Champions League group stages this week. The Gunners well deserve win over Fenerbahce, 5-0 on aggregate to secure a place in the competition and they are hoping to finally get their transfer business up and running.
Arsenal football club have been blessed with significant financial power but have fail to utilize it in the transfer market they are yet to spend any money so far in bringing in Yaya Sanogo and Mathieu Flamini on free transfers. Arsenal fans were promised a marquee signing earlier in the summer but deals for Gonzalo Higuain and Luis Suarez didn’t go through, leaving Arsene Wenger with no-one to show for his work during the summer.
With only three days left of the transfer window, it appears Arsenal are on the move to make another move to sign a big name and have showed their interest in Chelsea’s playmaker Mata as their target to strengthen their midfield. The Spanish playmaker has seen little game play time under new boss Jose Mourinho, despite being named Chelsea Player of the Year in both seasons he has been at the club.
Arsenal moves to sign the playmaker in 2011 but Chelsea’s late bid of £23 million sealed the move and the midfielder/playmaker has shown his worth being named Chelsea Player of the Year in both seasons he has been at the club. The odds look good for Arsenal for a move for the Spaniard .
Mata will need regular playing time with the blues to get more play time in the World Cup in the summer.so far the Spaniard has only played 65 minutes out of a possible 270 for the blues and was unused in Chelsea’s goalless draw with Manchester United in the weekend. Chelsea’s latest signing, Willian leave’s Mata’s place in doubt. His father and agent was in the director’s box during Arsenal’s victory over Fenerbahce which have left many wondering why.
Arsenal worries on injuries, as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski have left Arsenal thin on the attacking front and despite a frustrating summer, Mata could well be worth the wait.
