Takehiro Tomiyasu has spoken out on his transfer from Bologna to Arsenal. Tomiyasu joined the Gunners on the transfer deadline day from Serie A side on a four-year deal.
“I feel that the team has changed and it is a new start,” Tomiyasu said.
“I am happy to join the Premier League stage that I was originally aiming for, and also to join Arsenal, a global big club.
“I’ve had more injuries in Italy and I’ve had muscular injuries in the last two years. I wasn’t in good shape, and with that, I couldn’t do be at 100%, or I wasn’t happy with the performance (in the last few months) at all.
“I hope that this transfer will lead to a positive direction. I have a strong feeling of a new start.”
