Romano reveals valuable info on Tomiyasu and Arsenal


Fabrizio Romano conveyed encouraging updates regarding Takehiro Tomiyasu’s discussions about a new contract with Arsenal. The Japanese defender has been the subject of transfer speculations in recent months. Meanwhile, Arsenal has been reportedly rejecting an approach from Napoli.

Takehiro Tomiyasu has not yet solidified his position as a consistent starter in Mikel Arteta’s team. However, he remains a crucial member of the Spanish manager’s squad.

This is primarily attributing to his versatility, showcasing proficiency in playing across various positions in the defensive lineup. Additionally, he has demonstrated excellent defensive capabilities and consistently maintains a high level of performance.

Previous reports have indicated Tomiyasu’s desire to remain in North London, even in the face of interest from Serie A. Now, Fabrizio Romano has shared optimistic updates about Tomiyasu’s negotiations with Arsenal for a potential new contract.

What did Romano say about Arsenal negotiating with Tomiyasu?

Romano said:

“Negotiations are advancing very well. There is still something to clarify in terms of the structure of the new deal, but Tomiyasu wants to stay. We heard some rumours from Italy, saying Napoli, Roma and AC Milan are interested. It’s true that many Italian clubs were considering a move on loan for Tomiyasu.”

As of now, Tomiyasu is on international duty with Japan at the Asian Cup. But expectations are he will rejoin Arsenal by mid-February. The 25-year-old was in good form, enjoying a consistent run in the side before sustaining a calf injury in early December.

Securing a new contract with the defender would be a significant boost for Arteta since Tomiyasu has importance to the current Arsenal side. Despite not being a regular starter under Arteta in the past year, Tomiyasu has remained dedicated to the club and consistently steps in to contribute whenever needed.
