Arsenal's Japanese defender on the verge of signing a major contract extension after successful talks.

Arsenal’s Japanese defender Takehiro Tomiyasu is on the verge of signing a lucrative new contract with the club, sources have revealed to Football Insider. Following successful negotiations, an official announcement from the Gunners is imminent, signaling a significant salary increase for the 25-year-old.

Tomiyasu, who joined Arsenal from Serie A side Bologna in 2021 for £15.5 million, has impressed under manager Mikel Arteta, prompting the club to secure his services for the long term. Despite not being a regular starter, his versatility and solid performances have earned him recognition, making him a valuable asset for the team.

In the current season, Tomiyasu has made 20 appearances across all competitions, contributing with one goal and three assists. His ability to play across the backline has been instrumental, providing Arteta with tactical flexibility and defensive solidity.

Despite his backup role, Tomiyasu is reportedly content with his situation at Arsenal and is committed to the club’s future. His decision to stay in North London reflects his confidence in the team’s vision and his belief in his role within the squad.

While representing Japan at the Asian Cup, Tomiyasu’s focus remains on his international duties. However, with Japan’s elimination from the tournament, he is expected to return to Arsenal soon and continue his contributions to the team’s success.

Arsenal’s recent impressive performances, including their sensational 3-1 victory against Liverpool, have propelled them to third place in the Premier League table. With momentum on their side, they are gearing up for their next challenge against West Ham United.

As Tomiyasu prepares to commit his future to Arsenal, the club’s fans eagerly anticipate the official confirmation of his contract extension, signalling a bright future for both the player and the team.
