Now, the esteemed journalist has taken to Twitter to say Tomiyasu has successfully completed his Arsenal medical.

In addition, the north Londoners are reportedly set to pay “less than €20million” (around £17million) for his services.

The Gunners appear to have beaten north London rivals Spurs to the 22-year-old’s signature as he was linked with them too.

Everton were apparently also eyeing Tomiyasu earlier this year.

Prior to joining Sint-Truiden, he came through the ranks at Japanese club Avispa Fukuoka.

He has made 64 appearances for Bologna, registering three goals and three assists.

In addition, Tomiyasu has won 23 senior caps for Japan, scoring once, and competed at the Tokyo Olympics this summer.
