Arsenal have tabled a bid for Valencia forward Juan Mata.

A deal worth up to £17.5million has been offered to Valencia for the 23-year-old.

It had been reported that Mata’s agent, his father, flew in for talks yesterday, but wearethenorthbank.com understand that wasn’t the case, although Arsenal are keen to seal the deal as soon as possible.

The Spain international is contracted to Valencia until 2015.
