English Premier League club Arsenal is considering making a bid for Japanese wonderkid Takuma Asano, sources claimed.
According to local newspapers, the 21-year-old player is being closely monitored by various European clubs, including Augsburg, RB Salzburg, and Grasshopper Club Zurich.
However, Arsenal seems to have an upper hand with a favorable offer to the young player. It is also reported that Asano would likely to be loaned out to another club if the deal can be completed.
Asano has played for Sanfrecce Hiroshima since 2013. He was named 2015 J.League’s Best Young Player after scoring 9 league goals in 34 appearances, helping the team to win the domestic league title.
