Ian Wright already blown away by ‘magnificent’ Arsenal signing

Posted by

Arsenal legend Ian Wright is impressed with one particular Gunners signing so far this season.

The Gunners were very active in the transfer window, spending more than any of their rivals and snapping up the likes of Ben White and Martin Odegaard.

But among the more unexpected signings was full-back Takehiro Tomiyasu, who arrived on a deal worth around £15million, as cited by Transfermarkt.

Tomiyasu has become a fresh option at right-back following the departure of Hector Bellerin, who had gone a little stale in recent years, needing a fresh start elsewhere.

Arsenal’s newest right-back is only 22 years of age, but he has already impressed after starting two Premier League wins.

Tomiyasu helped Arsenal pick up their first two wins of the season, beating Norwich City and Burnley, and he already has, not only the fans, but club legend turned pundit Wright impressed, very much starting on the right foot.

“Tomiyasu, I don’t think anyone has gone past him,” Wright said on the Wrighty’s House podcast. “He’s a very shrewd signing. He’s been magnificent.

“Of course, in the two games we’ve played are two games you’d expect us to play well and win in, and we have.”

  1. To be honest this is the best signing Arteta has done I am thinking playing with William Saliba and Gabby at the back this season nothing would have stop Arsenal making top 4 but because inexperienced Mikel Arteta he allowed him go on loan let him not make mistake of bringing him back next season if not by January every good coach need a player that will help him win matches but the reverse is the case for Arteta if not one thing I will like Arteta to be shown the way out he did poorly by giving the boy out on loan he has no foresight on players his best signing remain Sambi Lokonga Takehiro Tomiyasu Nuno is also on Odegarde he is already a good player before Arteta went for him together with Parttey so let him improve otherwise
