'Winning the league': Some Arsenal fans buzzing over who could now be available v Norwich
Arsenal fans have welcomed the reports claiming Gunners newcomer Takehiro Tomiyasu has been handed a work permit.
Tomiyasu joined Arsenal on transfer deadline day for a reported £16million after two years with Bologna.
The Japan star met Gunners boss Mikel Arteta for the first time on Thursday and trained with his new teammates.
Tomiyasu was still waiting for his work permit on Thursday morning.
Without it, he wouldn’t have been able to feature in the Premier League must-win clash with Norwich on Saturday.
But now he’s seemingly got the all-clear, he will surely fancy his chances of making the matchday squad at the Emirates.
Tomiyasu can feature at both centre-back and right-back, so there’s a good chance he could even make the starting XI.
And Arsenal fans are thrilled about the news:
