Chelsea favourite Mata could be lost to Premier League

The Premier League face losing Chelsea ace Juan Mata before next week's transfer deadline.

The Daily Star says the unsettled playmaker was keen on a switch from Chelsea to Arsenal.

But Blues boss Jose Mourinho insists the Spain international is not going anywhere else in the Premier League, meaning his best hope looks like being a move abroad.

Atletico Madrid are keen on a loan deal, while Barcelona were also interested earlier in the summer.
