Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he signed striker Takuma Asano because of his pace, body strength and quality of his runs.
The Japan international was one of the very first signings made by the Frenchman during the summer transfer window.
He will spend the remainder of the season on loan at VfB Stuttgart but will be a very important player for the Gunners according to the 66-year-old.
"What I see in him is the quality of his runs, his pace, his body strength and he is quite aggressive," Wenger told Arsenal Player.
"You do not find many players today who go behind the defenders at every opportunity.
"That is one of his strengths.
"I must say, I'm personally a strong believer in him, because by coincidence I met the national coach of Japan and he is absolutely convinced by him."
