Why Bundesliga club refuse to play Arsenal loanee again

Arsenal player Takuma Asano joined Bundesliga side Hannover on a temporary basis at the beginning of the season.

Reportedly, Hannover refuse to play the 24-year-old to avoid paying a buy-out clause, a decision that angered Arsenal.

Takuma Asano has an experience to play in Germany, having spent time at Stuttgart during a two-year loan spell in which he impressed. This season he has appeared in 15 games in all competitions and scored only one goal and made one assists in a cup game against third tier Karlsruher SC back in August.

It’s been reported in Germany that if Asano plays one more game this season, Hannover side will be obliged to pay £2.6million to purchase him permanently from Arsenal.

In fact, Arsenal are believed to be ‘angry’ at Hannover. The Japanese forward signed for Arsenal back in 2016 from Sanfrecce Hiroshima but is yet to make a single appearance for the club.

Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea may no longer seal Champions League spot due to rule change
