Barry Jhay – Kabiyesi

The 22-year-old made a major impression in Serie A, leading to interest from all across Europe

Arsenal have confirmed the signing of defender Takehiro Tomiyasu from Bologna.

The 22-year-old Japan international joins for a fee of £16 million (€19m/$22m) and will wear the No.18 in north London.

Tomiyasu is a natural centre-back but has played mostly at right-back since joining Bologna in 2019, and will likely feature there after Hector Bellerin joined Real Betis on a season-long loan earlier in the day.
