Tomiyasu explains why he couldn't say no to Arsenal after making £16m move

 The Japan international defender is delighted to be at Emirates Stadium and has no doubts that he made the right career call

Takehiro Tomiyasu has explained why he could not turn down a £16 million ($22m) move to Arsenal, with the Japan international defender considering the Gunners to be "one of the biggest clubs in the world".

The Gunners have slipped from the lofty standings they once occupied in Premier League and elite European competition, but they remain a big draw and are working through a long-term rebuilding project under the guidance of Mikel Arteta.

Tomiyasu forms part of those plans following a summer switch from Bologna and is convinced that he has linked up with a sleeping giant that few players would pass up the opportunity to join.
