Some Spurs fans gutted over who Arsenal are reportedly signing on transfer deadline day
Spurs and Arsenal have been linked with Takehiro Tomiyasu this summer.
Both Tottenham and the Gunners have been looking to bolster their right-back position.
Now, it looks as though Arsenal have beaten Spurs to the Japan international’s signing on transfer deadline day.
Multiple outlets have all been reporting that Arsenal are now on the verge of announcing Tomiyasu’s arrival.
The Athletic’s David Ornstein reported at 10:11am BST that the Gunners were working on a deal for the Bologna ace.
Things moved quickly and, at 12:54pm BST, Fabrizio Romano claimed that all paperwork has been completed between the relevant parties.
“Here-we-go confirmed,” he wrote. “Medical during the afternoon and then… official.”
While Spurs are seemingly closing in on Emerson Royal, some fans are nonetheless gutted a great player like Tomiyasu is all-but set to join their rivals.
Here is some of the Spurs fan reaction on Twitter:
