Oh it’s crazy crunch time in the football transfer window. 10 hours to go and the Guardian just confirmed that Arsenal have signed a new RB/RFB subject to a successful medical. Takehiro Tomiyasu is to join us from Bologna:
He is 188cm tall, fast and ball tight from what I saw on YouTube. His Bologna defence stats are mostly in the top three and he was twice MoTM last season.
I have not seen him play but it all sounds promising.
This must mean that Bellerin is indeed on his way out. Hector always gave his all and he added personality to the team, but a departure now seems right for both parties.
It would not surprise me if there are more comings and goings. We need a clean slate as much as possible and all those who stay to be fully committed to the cause.
Will Ainsley be allowed to leave (on loan)?
Will Eddie leave for Crystal Palace?
Will Kola leave (on loan)?
Will we sign another attacking midfielder – Aouar or Bisouma maybe?
Will Auba slip out at the last minute?
What are your predictions fine fellow Gooners?
