The father of Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata was understood to be at Emirates stadium last night. Mata Snr and his son's agent was spotted taking their seat for Arsenal's victory over Fenerbahce in their Champions League qualifier.

Asked about the development, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger said: "I have heard like you, because I watched the game last night, that Juan Mata could be on the market. I don't know. There's anyway a reluctance in England to sell to each other."
