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.

Arsene Wenger revealed on Monday that Asano Takuma’s request for a work permit was rejected. However, the club have acted swiftly by sending the striker out on loan.

Official reports can confirm that Takuma has completed his transfer to German side Stuttgart; a move which would see him spend the entire season in Germany.

The 21-year-old caught the eye at the Rio 2016 Olympics where he scored two goals for the team Japan. His performances have earned him accolades from all corners and, in extension, a new club.

Stuttgart have announced the signing of Takuma and it is expected that he would garner the much needed experience at Gemany’s second division.
