If it's passion Arsenal fans are looking for in their new signings, it looks like they've got it in Takuma Asano.

The 21-year-old Japan international played his last game for Sanfrecce Hiroshima, with whom he won five trophies in three years, in a 2-2 draw with Yokohama F. Marinos on Sunday night.

And he was clearly emotional as he addressed the fans after the match:

Asano will link up with the Gunners after sealing a move to north London earlier this month, but manager Arsene Wenger is expected to loan him out.
