UTAKA TEAMMATE TO ARSENAL’S NEW SIGNING ASANO GIVES LOW DOWN ON FORWARD

Arsenal’s new signing Takuma Asano will turn heads in the English Premier League according to John Utaka his strike partner at Japanese side Sanfreece Hiroshima.

Arsenal announced the signing of 21 year old Takuma on the 3rd of July and Utaka who plays with the forward in attack for Sanfreece Hiroshima says he has all it takes to succeed in the English Premier League.

32 year old Utaka joined Takuma at Sanfreece Hiroshima from relegated Shimizu S-Pulse before the start of the season and has so far scored 14 goals in the league as oppose to two scored by Asano but he reckons the forward has more to his game than goals.

“He is not the average player most people thought he is before I joined him at Sanfreece this season he was one of the player I hate to face last year, he has all it takes to succeed in England, he can score,set up others and not scared of taking on defenders” He told Owngoalnigeria.com

” Takuma is the type of player a coach will love to have in his team, he is just 21 and he is already the fans favourite, in England Arsenal fans will love him even more”.
