Takehiro Tomiyasu’s future decided! Arsenal end transfer speculation by tying Japan star down to new long-term contract

The report comes from Fabrizio Romano, who reports that the club and head coach Mikel Arteta always wanted to keep the Japan international at the club and that a departure for Tomiyasu was never discussed internally. The report claims that "everything is ready" and that Tomiyasu's new deal would soon be announced. After receiving attention from Italian teams "in the last months," Tomiyasu accepted the terms Arsenal offered, with the Gunners informing the interested parties that there was "no chance" he would be allowed to depart.

The Japanese defender joined the Premier League giants from Serie A's Bologna in the summer of 2021. Though injuries have severely impeded his time in England, he has been remarkably consistent for the Gunners. This season, he missed several weeks of action in December due to a calf issue, and by the time he recovered, he was headed to the Asian Cup to represent Japan. With Japan now knocked out of the Asian Cup, he will soon return to action with the Gunners.
