Report: Club already planning £25.8m bid for 'incredible' Arsenal player, he's currently at the World Cup

Juventus are plotting a swoop for Arsenal defender Takehiro Tomiyasu, who is currently at the World Cup with Japan.

CMW report that Max Allegri wants to bolster his backline despite some recent improvements in terms of solidity and results.

They say that it would cost 30 million euros (£25.8 million) to lure the Japanese international away from the Emirates Stadium.

He played his part as Japan stunned Germany at the World Cup, coming from behind to beat them 2-1 in the first round of group games.

Juventus keen on Tomiyasu

Juve apparently like the flexibility of the Arsenal defender, who can play in either full-back position or even at centre-half in a pinch.

They would only be able to embark on a transfer in the summer transfer window because they would need to re-jig their non-EU spots.

Tomiyasu has Serie A experience, having come to Arsenal from Bologna and Juventus are seemingly hoping that he can be lured back to Italy.

The Japanese international has lost his first choice right-back spot to Ben White this season but his professionalism and versatility is so important to Mikel Arteta.

Tomiyasu, branded as ‘incredible’ by Kevin Campbell can play a big part for Arsenal after the World Cup, as they try and maintain their lead at the top of the Premier League.

The World Cup should give him some fitness and confidence, especially if Japan keep up the level of performance which saw them beat the 2014 World Cup champions.
