Takehiro Tomiyasu reveals that he rejected Tottenham for Arsenal

5

Arsenal right-back Takehiro Tomiyasu has revealed that he turned down the chance to join Tottenham after the Gunners came in for him on the deadline.

The Japanese national team player had been expected to join Spurs all summer, with a deal believed to be completed halfway through the transfer window, but it never happened and Tomiyasu joined Arsenal, while Tottenham instead moved for Emerson Royal.

Since moving to the Emirates, Tomiyasu has quickly become a fan favorite, and he admitted to DAZN Japan that he has absolutely no regrets about choosing to join the red side of north London.

“I thought I could not go with Arsenal,” he said. “I thought I was going to Spurs. On the deadline, I rejected them.

“Arsenal asked me to join them and I did so immediately.”

Life, death and the driving Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham have been pushing in recent years and the 3-0 loss to Manchester United was a new low.

When asked about his goals for the season, Tomiyasu made it clear that he dreams of restoring the Gunners to the top of the football pyramid in England.

“I just accept the challenge,” he continued. “If we could go back in time to when Arsenal were at the top, Emirates would be the best place in the world. That would be my dream.”

He continued: “Italy has a lot of tactical training and there were days when I did not give 100% in training. It suddenly made me go 100% in matches, which could have led to injuries. At Arsenal, most of the training days required 100 %.

“That’s the way it should be. I do sprint measurements and train when I’m at the gym to make sure I’m 100%.”

Tomiyasu has started every Premier League match for Arsenal since arriving from Bologna for £ 20m on deadline day and has yet to taste defeat with his new team, winning five and drawing two of his seven matches.
