Report – Juventus eyes a move for Arsenal full-back

Juventus has been linked with a shock move for Arsenal full-back Takehiro Tomiyasu.

The Japanese star joined the Gunners last season and instantly became their first-choice right-back and a crowd favourite.

His exemplary performance for Arsenal nearly earned them a return to the Champions at the end of his first campaign in London.

Mikel Arteta has preferred to use Ben White as his right-back this term, but the importance of Tomi cannot be understated because he is often preferred to Kieran Tierney at left-back.

A report on Calciomercatoweb reveals he is one of the players Juventus is targeting to become their next right-back.

The Italians have several names on their list and are ready to move to take the Arsenal man back to Serie A, where he played for Bologna before now.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Tomiyasu is one of the finest players in our squad now and the Japanese star is one of the reasons we have remained in the title race.

We are building a team capable of winning more trophies and must be sure to keep our key men in the squad.

If we sell him, the other players might see it as a sign they can also leave for other clubs.

    1. Totally disagree – he’s quality and covers all defensive positions. If we want to build a deep squad, we need him.

      1. Ya’ll are myopic.
        In a season Arsenal WILL be playing Champion’s league football. Imagine arsenal are trailing Bayern Munich 0-1 and needing to score and must make ATTACKING changes from the BACK because of the QUALITY of the opposition. What would be the point taking out Ben White for Tomiyasu in the 78th minute at Allianz Arena?

  1. Except he hands in a transfer request, which I know he won’t, then juve should look elsewhere! The best teams in the world have top players in all positions, and that’s exactly what we need at arsenal.

  2. But why Juventus are behind Arsenal’s fullbacks? Firstly they wanted Gabriel, till he committed to long contract. Now they turn to Tommy, damed! Is White next?

  3. Unless the old lady will offer some ridiculous crazy money , but knowing stingy Juventus that’s not going to happen so NAH.

    He is the most versatile defender in the team

  4. I will like to call our mains back to where we got our manager from and how Pep, always build his team. No one on the field will says he is better than the one on the beach. That’s how we want Arsenal to be.

  5. Tomi is too important to our depth, a quality player too, we’d be crazy to let him go while we’re looking so strong back there

  6. Tomi is one of the best defender in the league and at his age he still have alot to show for years. We need to keep him in the squad.

  7. Tomiyasu is one of the finest players in our squad now and the Japanese star is one of the reasons we have remained in the title race.

    A wee bit over the top, yes a Good player but as for last season he was injured for 5 months, which left us with Cedric. Of course the ? will be asked should Ben have been moved over last season.
    As for KT it made sense against Liverpool, but cost us a lot in the other games, put more pressure on Gabbi11.
    And as soon as Zinny was half-fit after a month out he was back in
    I kind of think it will be KT that goes, not Tomi next summer he is 3rd choice now. Which I don’t agree with as he gives us more then Tomi does going forward and is more defence minded then Zinny.

  8. Yet another wild and nonsense rumour that seems to worry some people. God alone knows why, as it will neve happen!

    Bizarrely there is one, right at the top, from a fan who has no idea at all of Tomi’s worth, but then, as they say, there is always one! Sigh!
