The new Arsenal latest new signing, Takuma Asano, reportedly posed with an Arsenal scarf holding a press conference following his shock move to the Emirates Stadium.

The deal for Sanfrecce Hiroshima forward came in as a surprise target last week when reports claimed the north Londoners tabled a bid to Sanfrecce Hiroshima believed to be around £5m for the his signature.

the deal was wrapped-up suddenly as the Gunners announced on their official website yesterday that they had beaten off stiff competition from a number of clubs to secure a deal to sing the Japanese forward this summer.

The reports was met with a mixed response from Gunners fans on social media as Asano is widely unknown in this country having only recently broken in to the Japan national team – he scored just a goal in his 5 cap so far.

The 21-year-old Japanese caught the attention of Arsenal scouts after he bagged 11 goals in 56 appearances, which helped Sanfrecce Hiroshima to secure two J-League titles and 3 Japan Super Cups over the past seasons while the striker was also voted as the J-League’s Young Player of the Year in 2015.

The Gunners has described the Japanese forward as ‘one for the future’ so I expect he’ll be sent out on loan next season to gain some much needed experience and the boss is fully expected to still

Arsene Wenger has described him as ‘one for the future’ so I expect he’ll be sent out on loan next season to gain some much needed experience and the boss is fully expected to still bring in a more established striker to make an immediate impact on the first team.

He has now been declared to the media as an Arsenal player at a press conference in Japan where he posted with Arsenal scarf in a photo.

You can watch the video below but it will be useless unless you speak Japanese. To sum up, the striker says he’s proud to be joining a club like Arsenal but still has a few games to go with his club before he leaves so he’ll continue to give 100%.
