Arsenal’s new signing Takehiro Tomiyasu sent the fans a message after his transfer was made official late last night.
The Japan international joins from Bologna in what looks a smart piece of business by the Gunners, especially with Hector Bellerin departing for Real Betis in another major deadline day move.
Bellerin’s form had taken a bit of a dip in recent times and it’s not too surprising Arsenal were keen to replace him, with Tomiyasu looking like a potentially major upgrade after impressing in Serie A.
Watch the video clip below as the 22-year-old spoke to Arsenal fans for the first time, vowing to give it his all in the red and white shirt…
Hi Tomi! ?
? "I promise you I will give everything to contribute to the team. I'm looking forward to seeing you in the stadium."

Tomiyasu joins Martin Odegaard, Ben White, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Aaron Ramsdale and Nuno Tavares in joining Arsenal this summer.
It’s been a terrible start to the season on the pitch for Mikel Arteta’s side, but these signings look promising and could have a positive impact once they all settle in.
