Arsenal prepare an approach for Manchester United attacker Juan Mata, according to a report.

Arsenal are reportedly preparing an approach for Manchester United attacker Juan Mata.

Mata has worked his way back into the United team in recent weeks, but the 30-year-old's contract with the Red Devils will expire at the end of this season, and his future is far from secure.

The Spaniard came off the bench to score a brilliant free kick in United's 2-1 win over Juventus on Wednesday night.

However, according to The Mirror, Mata is still in the dark over his future at Old Trafford, and Arsenal are considering an approach for the versatile attacker, who is keen to stay in the Premier League.

Mata has scored 42 times and registered 34 assists in 198 appearances for United since a 2014 move from Chelsea.

The Spaniard played under current Arsenal boss Unai Emery at Valencia between 2008 and 2011, meanwhile, and it is understood that the two still have a strong relationship.
