Arsenal manager Unai Emery is plotting a shock move for Manchester United attacker Juan Mata.
The Spanish tactician has made a brilliant start to his career in England, with his club winning 12 consecutive games in all competitions.
The Gunners have climbed to fourth spot on the table and are presently top of their UEFA Europa League group.
But Emery is already considering where he needs to reinforce his team at Emirates Stadium and will keep close tabs on the situations of attacker Juan Mata at Old Trafford.
The Daily Star reports that manager Unai Emery is a big fan of the midfielder, who he managed severally at Valencia.
Mata, 30, will be out of deal at the end of the season and the Red Devils have so since been unable to convince him to pen a contract extension.
