According to Serbian publication Mondo, Takuma Asano has sealed a permanent move to Partizan Belgrade.
The Japan international, 24, appears to have penned a three-year contract with the SuperLiga side who are managed these days by former Aston Villa striker Savo Milosevic.
It is reported that Partizan will pay us a £1 million transfer fee in three instalments, which means we’ll make a £2.5 million loss on a player who Arsene Wenger signed from Sanfrecce Hiroshima in July 2016.
Asano, who never played made an appearance for the Gunners, was first linked with a move to the Serbian capital at the start of the month. He’s spent the last three years undertaking loan spells VfB Stuttgart and Hannover 96.
Best of luck in Serbia, it’s a shame it didn’t work out for you in London.
