Arsenal will be hoping to carry their strong Premier League form into the Champions League when they face Porto on Wednesday. 

The Gunners travel to Portugal off the back of five straight victories in the league, most recently a 5-0 win over relegation-threatened Burnley on Saturday afternoon.

Those results have lifted Mikel Arteta’s side back into the Premier League title race, with the North London outfit currently sitting just two points behind leaders Liverpool.

Now, it appears that there could soon be more good news for Gunners fans with a defender set to commit his future to the club.

As per Fabrizio Romano, full-back Takehiro Tomiyasu has signed a new deal with the club, which will soon be announced.

Tomiyasu has signed a new contract with Arsenal

The journalist claims that the player penned an extension around two weeks ago, with official confirmation of the development imminent.

Tomiyasu, 25, joined the Gunners from Italian side Bologna in the summer of 2021 and has since made 73 appearances for the London side across all competitions.

Primarily a right-back, Tomiyasu has also been used on the left of Arteta’s back four in the absence of regular left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko.

The Japan international’s current contract is set to run until the summer of 2025, but Romano claims that he will sign an extension to keep him at The Emirates beyond that date.

Last month, the defender travelled to Qatar to represent Japan at the Asia Cup, but he was unable to prevent his side from exiting the competition at the quarter-final stage.
