Tomiyasu Commits Future to Arsenal with New Contract

Arsenal’s solidifying trend in securing player contracts continues as Takehiro Tomiyasu has reportedly agreed to a new deal. According to TEAMtalk, a breakthrough has been achieved regarding the contract negotiations for the Gunners’ full-back.

The contract details are expected to be finalized once Tomiyasu returns from the Asian Cup later this month. Arsenal have been adept at extending contracts, addressing a historical weakness where key players would enter the final year of their deals.

In the past year, players like William Saliba, Gabriel Martinelli, and Bukayo Saka have all committed their futures to Arsenal.

Arteta consider Tomiyasu as a valuable player

Tomiyasu, viewed as a crucial player by Arteta, seems to be the next to secure a deal with the club. Report suggests that the Japanese international is on track of extending his stay at the Emirates. The 25-year-old, described as ‘world-class’ by teammate Ben White, has become an integral part of Arteta’s plans.

Tomiyasu’s existing contract runs until 2025, with an additional year’s option. Having made 73 appearances for the Gunners since joining three years ago, including 20 this season, his importance to the team is evident.

Despite speculation linking him with a move to Napoli during the January transfer window, Arsenal remained firm in retaining Tomiyasu.

Renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano previously provided insight into the ongoing negotiations on his socials, stating, “Negotiations are advancing very well. There is still something to clarify in terms of the structure of the new deal, but Tomiyasu wants to stay.”

Arsenal rebuffed reported interest from Italian clubs, including Napoli, AS Roma, and AC Milan, reinforcing their commitment to retaining the talented defender.

As Arsenal continue to secure key players for the future, Tomiyasu’s anticipated contract extension reflects the club’s efforts to maintain stability and build a formidable squad under Mikel Arteta.
