Confirmed: Arsenal have made a formal offer to sign international striker


Arsenal have made a formal offer to seal the transfer of Sanfrecce Hiroshima striker Takuma Asano.

Having failed to secure the services of Leicester City man Jamie Vardy, manager Arsene Wenger is looking for alternatives options.

The 21-year-old scored 20 goals in 75 games for his club and is considered by many as one of the most promising strikers in Japan.

It is unclear if the Frenchman wants to sign the youngster to send him out on loan or to keep him at the Emirates next season.

The Gunners have added Switzerland's Granit Xhaka to their squad so far this summer but are expected to sign at least two more players before the end of the transfer window in September.
