New Arsenal signing poses with club scarf after completing move


New signing Takuma Asano has been pictured posing with the Arsenal scarf after the 21-year-old completed his transfer to the north London side.

Asano was signed from Sanfrecce Hiroshima in the J1 league, where he enjoyed a successful three-year stint, amassing 56 appearances and scoring 11 goals in the time.

Despite the signing of the Japanese star, it’s not expected that Asano will come straight into the picture of the first-team, with Arsene Wenger confirming that the move was simply one ‘for the future’ in a club statement in which he welcomed the club’s newest recruit.

Arsenal supporters will have their first opportunity to watch Asano play in this summer’s Olympics, having been selected by Japan to take part in the games in Rio this August.

Asano becomes just the third Japanese player to be signed by Arsene Wenger, after the somewhat unsuccessful signings of Junichi Inamoto and lightning quick Ryo Miyaichi.
