Arsenal boss Emery ready to pounce for Man Utd ace Mata

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata is a top January target for Arsenal.

The Daily Mail says the Spanish midfielder has just eight months left to run on his current contract at Old Trafford, and is yet to be offered an improved deal by the club.

That leaves the door open for the Gunners to make a move for the 30-year-old, with boss Unai Emery keen on reuniting with his former Valencia colleague.

Mata - who is on £140k per week - is waiting on an offer from United , but would be free to discuss terms with prospective new clubs in January.

Mata would prefer to extend his deal with the Red Devils, but would move in order to stay in the Premier League and has also attracted interest from La Liga.
