Wenger tightlipped on Arsenal targets Mata, Jagielka

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was tightlipped yesterday over their transfer targets.

Wenger maintained it was "difficult" to talk about potential transfer targets - even if rival clubs do not show the same respect to Arsenal.

On Valencia midfielder Juan Mata, he commented: "I like the player, but that does not mean we will buy him."

Wenger also insisted there was "not a lot to say" about Arsenal's interest in Everton defender Phil Jagielka, with one £10m bid already rebuffed.

"The player is under contract at Everton. If we want to buy a player, we need first the agreement of the club," he said.
