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:
