Juan Mata transfer to Arsenal closer

As Arsenal fans come to terms with the likely departures of Fabregas and Nasri on the eve of the start of the new season, there does seem to be some good news on the horizon. And it comes in the form of a signing that is looking more and more likely as each day passes.

Spanish winger Juan Mata currently plays for Valencia. He is a player that would have an immediate impact on the Arsenal team. He plays on the left wing and would add pace, great positional sense and a few goals as well to the weakened Arsenal midfield. He is 23 years old and has already played a dozen games for the senior Spanish international side.

According to reports in Spain, there has been extended contact between the clubs in recent days. The transfer could occur as soon as early next week and will depend on the sales of Cesc and Nasri. I feel this signing will go some way in offsetting the current doom and gloom that currently surrounds the club and hopefully signal the start of more arrivals to the club.
