Everyone knows that the only way to properly judge a player is by looking at his YouTube compilation video.
As everyone calmly gets to grips with the news that we’ve signed Japan international Takuma Asano, let’s instantly make our minds up about him on the basis of some short highlights set to what is probably a really dodgy soundtrack.
He’s got some skills, in fairness to him. The word is he’s likely to be loaned out for a season, so chances are we won’t see him in an Arsenal shirt for a while.
However, he will be part of Japan’s Olympics squad so we can get our first real look then.
