Takehiro Tomiyasu Nearing New Arsenal Contract Amid Serie A Interest

Arsenal fans can breathe a sigh of relief as negotiations for a new contract with Tomiyasu are reportedly progressing positively.

Fabrizio Romano has shared encouraging news, revealing that talks between the player and the club are “advancing very well.”

Tomiyasu, who has been a subject of transfer speculations linking him to Serie A clubs like Napoli, Roma, and AC Milan, has expressed his desire to stay in North London.

Despite an approach from Napoli that was turned down by Arsenal, the 25-year-old remains committed to Mikel Arteta’s side.

Romano shed light on the ongoing negotiations, stating. “There is still something to clarify in terms of the structure of the new deal, but Tomiyasu wants to stay.”

Interest in Tomiyasu from the Italian teams

While considering loan moves for him, Italian clubs found Arsenal making it clear there is no chance of Tomiyasu leaving.

The Japanese international has become an integral part of Arteta’s squad due to his adaptability and capability to play in various positions across the backline.

Although he has not consistently secured a starting role, his performances and commitment have not gone unnoticed.

Takehiro Tomiyasu, presently representing the Japanese national team at the Asian Cup, is expected to return to Arsenal by mid-February.

This potential contract extension comes as a significant boost for Arteta, who values the defender’s versatility and defensive prowess.

Despite suffering a calf injury in early December, Tomiyasu had been enjoying a run in the starting XI before his setback.

Securing a new deal with him reflects Arsenal’s commitment to retaining key players and building a stable squad for future.

The reported interest from Serie A clubs had raised eyebrows among Arsenal supporters, but Romano’s update quashes any doubts.

The defender’s willingness to stay and Arsenal’s firm stance against a potential departure underline his importance to the team.

As negotiations continue, Arsenal fans can look forward to seeing Tomiyasu extend his stay at the Emirates Stadium.

His return from the Asian Cup in mid-February could coincide with the formalization of the new contract, providing a timely boost for Arteta and the Gunners as they aim to solidify their position in domestic and European competitions.
