Edu Is Finalizing a £20m Defensive Overhaul with the Acquisition of a Dribbling, Modern-Day Fullback

Takehiro Tomiyasu, a 22-year-old Japanese defender, is set to join Arsenal from Bologna for €23 million plus add-ons, while Hector Bellarin is set to join La Liga. Tomiyasu will undoubtedly improve Arsenal's defense, which has already conceded nine goals in the Premier League, but Arsenal fans will be interested to see what Tomiyasu brings to the team.

According to whoscored's statistics profile, Tomiyasu is highly strong in aerial duels. He's a fantastic dribbler. He has a keen vision for crucial interceptions and, when necessary, is fairly energetic on the play to ensure he makes those crucial blocks.

Given Tomiyasu's strong performances in Serie A, a physically demanding league, Arteta may be getting the best deadline bargain he could have hoped for.

Tomiyasu has worn the number 14 and 16 jerseys for Bologna and the Japanese national team, respectively. At Arsenal, what number will he wear? Please let us know what you think in the comments area below.(Source: SB Nation & whoscored)
