He was delighted after the transfer was finalised.

"I'm looking forward to the task at hand at Stuttgart," the striker is quoted as saying by Goal.

"Many Japanese players have developed in the Bundesliga and had good experiences, particularly at VFB.

"I want to bring my qualities here and help the team to achieve its goals."

A statement on Arsenal's official website said: "Takuma Asano will join German side VfB Stuttgart on loan for the season..

"The forward has spent the past three years with Sanfrecce Hiroshima in the J-League, where he won two league titles, three Super Cups and the 2015 'Rookie of the Year' award.

We would like to wish Takuma well for his season in Stuttgart.

The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes."
