Japanese international Takuma Asano is eager to get his Arsenal career started after the north London side agreed a deal in principle to sign the youngster from Sanfrecce Hiroshima.

On Sunday, the Gunners revealed an “agreement in principle” to sign Asano from the J-League side had been reached.

However, the 21-year-old, who scored nine goals in 34 appearances last term said: "I am glad that I can have a challenge overseas, which I have always wanted.

"I want to play aggressively. I want to score many goals on the pitch, performing with my quick moves and eagerness."

Asano was named rookie of the year in Japan last season.
