"I want to score and contribute" - striker speaks out after Arsenal finalise transfer deal


Arsenal striker Takuma Asano is determined to score goals and help Stuttgart achieve their objectives this season.

The Japanese left the Gunners this week to play in Germany on loan.

He will feature in Germany's second division and will work under manager Jos Luhukay.

"I think there is a difference [in quality] between the first and second divisions but the level in the second tier is still very high," Asano told reporters in Tokyo.

"[Stuttgart] are a good club and I want to get games and deliver results.

"Hopefully I can get on the pitch and score to contribute to a win."

The 21-year-old joined Arsenal from Sanfrecce Hiroshima in July with manager Arsene Wenger describing him as a "talented young striker and very much one for the future."
