Report: Arsenal defender Osei-Tutu set to sign for Bochum

Arsenal defender Jordi Osei-Tutu is on the verge of leaving the Gunners permanently, with Sky Germany reporting that he is set to sign for Bochum imminently.

Osei-Tutu’s future has looked to lie away from the Emirates for a little while. Unfortunately, the 23-year-old is yet to make his first-team debut for Mikel Arteta’s men.

He has been on loan with a number of sides, including with Nottingham Forest at the start of last season. However, he has been unable to prove himself while away from North London.

So it will probably come as no surprise that Osei-Tutu is set to leave Arsenal in this window. And Sky Germany reports that he has already agreed his next move.

Osei-Tutu is set to join Bochum on a contract until 2025 imminently. The full-back joined the German side on loan during the 2019/20 season.

It actually proved to be the most successful spell Osei-Tutu has had so far. The youngster made 21 league appearances in the second tier in Germany. And he actually proved to be quite useful going forward, scoring five times.

Arsenal fans will hope Osei-Tutu can ignite his career following his move. Unfortunately, injury has hurt his development in the early stages of his time as a first-team player.

However, he is returning to familiar surroundings. Current Bochum head coach Thomas Reis referred to Osei-Tutu as a ‘great‘ lad and said that he had lots of quality during his loan spell.

Reis remains in place. And Bochum are now a top flight side. So it is little surprise that a return to Germany appeals to Osei-Tutu.
