New Arsenal signing: I was undecided about joining Arsenal then this happened

By

Japan striker Takuma Asano admits that he had to consult his family before deciding to join Arsenal this summer.

The 21-year-old became Arsene Wenger's second summer signing after leaving Sanfrecce Hiroshima to move to the Emirates.

He says he has no idea how much regular football he will enjoy at his new club but also that he is ready to give 100% both for his country and Arsenal.

"I've always wanted to play abroad and I had a few offers before but I was never sure if I should go or not," Asano told FIFA.com.

"Once I was called up for the top national team where there are a lot of players playing abroad. Playing with them made me think that I also want to play and challenge in a foreign league.

"And then I had the offer from Arsenal.

"Of course, I was still not sure whether to go or not. I talked with my family and friends and felt good about the decision after talking with them.

"I'm ecstatic about everything! With the Olympics and also for Arsenal—I'm still not sure if I'll actually play for Arsenal right away in the coming season, but definitely I'll try my best.

"My motto is to give 100 per cent for what's ahead of myself, so I just want to give my best to everything, whether it be for the Olympics or the new season. Even for my career after the Olympics, I definitely want to try to make the top national team."
