Chelsea to scupper Arsenal Mata move

Chelsea have emerged as rivals to Arsenal for the signature of Valencia wide man Juan Mata.

Andre Villas-Boas is keen to add another wide player to his squad and has identified Mata as someone who can do that as well as drop into a hole behind the main strikers.

Arsenal was leading the chase for Mata’s signature but Arsene Wenger appears to have switched his attentions to Lille’s Eden Hazard instead.

Spaniard Mata has a release clause of €60m but Valencia are reportedly willing to do business for €30m.
