Some Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to speculation that Takehiro Tomiyasu is available to play against Norwich City at the Emirates Stadium this weekend.
What’s the story?
Arsenal will take on Norwich at the Emirates Stadium in North London on Saturday.
Tomiyasu is available for the Premier League game, according to Football.London.
It has been reported that the Japan international defender’s work permit application has been approved.
The 22-year-old, who can play as a centre-back or as a right-back, joined Arsenal from Bologna in the summer transfer window.
Tomiyasu has already trained with his Arsenal teammates this week and could make his debut on Saturday.
What are Arsenal fans saying?
As you can see from the tweets below, Arsenal fans are excited at the prospect of seeing Tomiyasu in action.
Well, some of them anyway.
One Arsenal fan believes that Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo should be worried about facing the youngster this season.
Some fans of the North London club are hoping that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta uses Tomiyasu and not Calum Chambers in defence.
Ben White and Gabriel are likely to be the two main centre-backs for Arsenal this season, with summer signing Tomiyasu slotting in at right-back.
