Arsenal fans are not particularly excited after they announced the signing of Takuma Asano.
With Manchester United signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Chelsea capturing Michy Batshuayi in the previous few days, Gooners are understandably concerned about Arsene Wenger splashing the cash on another unknown player.

Ok, we know that any player can look good on Youtube compilations but he could be just the player the Emirates club needs.
Wenger expressed his delight at Asano’s arrival, telling the club’s website: “Takuma is a talented young striker and very much one for the future. He has had an impressive start to his career in Japan and we look forward to him developing over the next couple of years.”
Whether Asano can play a big part in Arsenal’s upcoming season remains to be seen with Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck standing in his way for a starting place.
While Asano was arriving in north London to sign his contract, Giroud has been impressing in France at Euro 2016. The striker scored twice in his side’s quarter-final against Iceland to send the hosts through to the last-four.
