Takehiro Tomiyasu’s first goal in Bologna
After parting with Hector Bellerin, Arsenal quickly recruited Takehiro Tomiyasu to replace the Spanish star. Tomiyasu has proven he is a quality addition, providing a stable solution in the right wing. The Japanese international did not take long to gain the trust of coach Mikel Arteta.
However, the 23-year-old defender has not played since the end of January due to injury. Cedric Soares has replaced Tomiyasu in the right-wing corridor recently. Obviously, the 30-year-old star is not the ideal option that Arteta can fully trust. Therefore, the Spanish captain planned to recruit a new right-back.
According to Teamtalk, the London Gunners have put Djed Spence on target. The 21-year-old star is experiencing a sublime season with Nottingham Forest (on loan from Middlesbrough) when he has 3 goals and 5 assists in all competitions. Spence is highly appreciated for possessing an abundant physical foundation, able to attack and defend rhythmically on the right wing. Compared to Tomiyasu, the English player is better at supporting the attack.
However, Arsenal will have to face rivals in the same city as Tottenham, when Antonio Conte also wants to upgrade the position of right-back, in the context of Matt Doherty and Emerson Royal do not have the necessary stability. Boro will therefore benefit from the battle between these two giants.
