Wenger may miss out on target Mata

Wednesday 29 June 2011 00:00 BST

Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger will step up his recruitment drive ahead of the start of pre-season training next week, but reported target Juan Mata insists he is happy at Valencia.

The Spanish midfielder, 23, is planning to take some time off after helping the Under-21s win the European Championship. He said: "I just want to disconnect. I am not thinking about my future. My contract runs until 2015 and let's hope my next trophy is with Valencia."
