Arsenal push Mata to make Chelsea transfer demand

Arsenal remain hopeful of signing Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata. The People says Mata will have to ­demand a transfer in order to push through a move to Arsenal on Monday.

The Gunners wanted to sign Chelsea's Spanish star - an interest confirmed by boss Arsene Wenger on Tuesday.

But Mata now faces a huge decision - knowing he will not be a regular starter in Chelsea's biggest matches under Jose Mourinho but also aware that the club will not actively look to sell him before the transfer window shuts.
