Arsenal’s hopes of having Takehiro Tomiyasu back in action for the start of the new season have been dealt a blow, with fears that the Japanese defender could be out for much longer than expected. Tomiyasu suffered a serious knee injury in March, and while Mikel Arteta has expressed hope that he will be fit for pre-season, The Telegraph reports that there are concerns he may not be ready to return until later in the year.

This news will come as a disappointment to Arsenal fans, who have been impressed by Tomiyasu since his arrival from Bologna two seasons back. The 22-year-old has made a number appearances for the Gunners this season, playing primarily at right-back. His versatility and defensive solidity have made him a key part of Arteta’s plans, and his absence will be keenly felt.

If Tomiyasu is indeed ruled out for an extended period of time, it could force Arsenal to look for a new right-back in the summer transfer window.

Whoever Arsenal decide to target, they will need to move quickly if they want to secure their services. The transfer market is likely to be competitive this summer, with many clubs looking to strengthen their squads after a challenging season. Arsenal will need to be proactive and decisive if they want to avoid being left behind.
