Arsenal’s stance on new acquisitions today, following the transfer of Takehiro Tomiyasu.
Takehiro Tomiyasu is scheduled to join Arsenal from Bologna in Serie A.
Takehiro Tomiyasu is expected to become Arsenal’s sixth signing of the summer transfer season. Once the original £17 million deal for Tomiyasu is completed, the Gunners will have spent nearly £150 million on new players. The Japan international, on the other hand, is likely to be the last fresh face to enter the Emirates.
Arsenal and Adidas have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which is based on the club’s motto of “Arsenal for everyone.”
Mikel Arteta has been pursuing younger players this summer, and Tomiyasu, who is 22, is no exception.
To give the Gunners squad more variety, the defender can play at both right-back and centre-back.
Tomiyasu is getting his medical this afternoon in Italy, ahead of the deadline of 11 p.m. tonight.
He will be Arteta’s third defensive signing of the summer.
Left-back Nuno Tavares was the first player to cross the finish line, followed by Ben White from Brighton for £50 million.
There have been two midfield arrivals, with Albert Sambi Lokonga and Martin Odegaard joining the team.
Aaron Ramsdale, a goalkeeper, has also joined the Gunners for an initial fee of £24 million.
However, according to football.london, there are unlikely to be any further additions beyond Tomiyasu.
Following the announcement that Reiss Nelson has joined Feyenoord on loan, there could be more departures.
Everton are after Ainsley Maitland-Niles, who made it obvious on his Instagram page on Tuesday that he wants to go.
Hector Bellerin is getting a physical before joining Real Betis on loan.
Meanwhile, following a disappointing first season at Arsenal, goalkeeper Runar Alex Runarsson is close to joining OH Leuven.
Arsenal has lost all three of their Premier League games this season.
Arteta’s team was defeated 5-0 by defending champions Manchester City on Saturday.
The Gunners haven’t had a worse start to a season since 1954/55.
Arteta feels he is to blame for his team’s poor performance and has promised to change things.
At the weekend, Arteta remarked, “I’ve always said it, I’ll be the one to accept responsibility.”
“I believe I’ve become more critical of myself and more willing to accept blame every time we lose, but only when we lose.
“I’m standing here today doing the same thing.
“I question myself, and I have to try to surround myself with the appropriate people, and I have to look at every decision we make, and every decision I make, and try to better it.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
