Arsenal Are Reportedly Working On A Deal For Highly Rated Defender On Deadline Day

Premeir league giants, Arsenal mean business this summer transfer window, with the Mikel Arteta led side already confirming five new arrivals this summer. However the Spanish gaffer is not yet done this summer as he is eager to bolster his defense line following a distratous start to the 2021/2022 EPL campaign where they have already conceded 9 goals in their opening 3 matches.

The North London based giants have brought in, playmaker maestro Martin Odegaard, Midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga, promising left back Nuno Tavares, young prodigy Ben White and goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale this summer as Mikel Arteta is Keen on building a formidable squad that can challenge for major honours this season.

According to the Athletic correspondent David Ornstein, Arsenal are working on a deal to sign highly rated Japanese defender Takehiro Tomiyasu from Seria A outfit Bologna, with talks said to be underway between the two clubs.

The 22 year old can play as a centre back or a right back. But the right back is the position the gunners boss is Keen to reinforce, as first choice right back Hector Bellerin is heavily linked with a move away from The Emirates stadium this summer, with Real Betis his preferred destination.

Takehiro has also been linked with a move to Arsenal's bitter rivals Tottenham, and whether he joins arsenal before the transfer window closure tonight at 11pm remains to be seen.
