Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal have finally unveiled the signing of former Sanfreece Hiroshima’s and Japanese international Takuma Asano as an official Arsenal player for the 2016/17 season.
However, an earlier report from the official website reveals the Japanese has loaned to German side VfB Stuttgart. The report read,
“Takuma Asano will join German side VfB Stuttgart on loan for the season.”
“The 21-year-old signed for Arsenal in July, before travelling to Brazil to represent Japan at Rio 2016 where he scored two goals in three games.”
“The forward has spent the past three years with Sanfrecce Hiroshima in the J-League, where he won two league titles, three Super Cups and the 2015 ‘Rookie of the Year’ award. We would like to wish Takuma well for his season in Stuttgart.”
“The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.”
Below are his picture during his unveiling as an Arsenal player.
The Japanese is the second Arsenal’s player to be loaned out of the club on a season-long loan this season as Joel Campbell has also joined Sporting Lisbon on earlier last week.
