Arsenal have had a bid for Valencia's Juan Mata rejected, according to the player's dad.

The 23-year-old hit the headlines during the Under-21 European Championships for his startling displays in Spain's victory.

And with Arsenal expected to lose Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri, Mata is seen an an ideal replacement, however the club are yet to have accepted for the winger.

Juan Manuel Mata Rodriguez said: "Valencia simply rejected their offer. After some hesitation they answered ‘no’ to the Gunners’ offer.


"So my son remains a Valencia player, for now. But I don’t think it’s their last offer."

Reports emerged over the weekend that Mata wouldn't be interested in a move to Arsenal's north-London rivals Tottenham Hotspur, and the player's father admits a move to Italy could be on the cards.

"There are several offers for Mata and I think that Arsenal will come forward again. The situation is still evolving.

"Are Inter Milan one of the interested teams? I know my son holds Milan in high esteem. We’ll see if Inter will come forward directly."
