Mikel Arteta has hailed the versatility of our new signing, Takehiro Tomiyasu, after his joined the club on transfer deadline day.
The Japan international can play at right back or as a centre back, and is used to a number of different systems, and our manager is confident he will be a big hit in the Premier League.
"We followed him for a while," Arteta told Arsenal Media. "We needed a full back who could be very versatile, can play as a centre back, can play in a back three, Tomi has this capacity.
"He is 22 years old but he has some really good experience in Serie A and at international level and with the qualities we are looking for."
