Takehiro Tomiyasu’s journey to set foot at Arsenal
Like any soccer player, Tomiyasu started from the bottom. His professional career began when he defended the club Avispa Fukuoka from 2015 to 2017. His slick game captivated one of the Belgian Pro League participants, Sint-Truiden. One season there, the 22-year-old defender recorded 27 appearances.
