Leeds United are reported to have pulled off another transfer deal - but don't expect the new signing to play for the club just yet.
Leeds and Eupen are linked through the network of the Aspire Academy, headed up by Whites director Ivan Bravo.
Leeds are though yet to confirm the move themselves.
Spanish side Cultural Leonesa are also part of the group, and have just loaned Yosuke Ideguchi from Leeds after they signed him from Gamba Osaka.
But while Ideguchi is regarded as Japan's most exciting talent and has represented the club at international level, Toyokawa does not have quite the same CV.
He had been playing for Fagiano Okayawa and is 23-years-old. The striker has spent most of his career to date in Japan's second division, and has netted only two goals in the top flight.
Toyokawa is a Japan under-23 international but has not featured for their senior team.
Earlier this week Leeds signed Finnish defender Aapo Halme for their under-23 side.
Claims of Toyokawa's signing might have been a welcome surprise, but Leeds fans want to see first team players signed who can help their promotion campaign.
Here is a look at how fans reacted on Twitter to the alleged move...
Nothing official out of #lufc but if true, I’d rather have seen Ideguchi go there, too. Nothing against Spanish second div, just don’t see Cultural Leonesa using him. Hope I’m wrong. We need that guy to go to Russia. https://t.co/bD9MdgJHS0— Always Leeds United (@AlwaysLeedsUnit) January 5, 2018
Yuta Toyokawa to #LUFC doesn’t really make much sense, signing from the second division in Japan, has a pretty poor record at that level as well. Wouldn’t expect to ever see him in a Leeds shirt, which makes you wonder why he’s joined us.— FocusOnTheFooty (@FocusOnTheFooty) January 5, 2018
#LUFC have signed J-League 2 striker Yuta Toyokawa and loaned him out to KAS Eupen, an Aspire-owned club. He's 23 and has a relatively poor record thus far. Unlikely we'll ever announce it, even more unlikely he'll ever play.— Distractedsen Leeds (@DistractedLeeds) January 5, 2018
Totally bizarre. https://t.co/VQvqNA28jS
It's not going to down well this at all.— Daryl (@Dazelar29) January 5, 2018
I can already see the hundreds of "can we deal with our own team first before helping others out?"
Yuta Toyokawa has joined #lufc and immediately been loaned out to KAS Eupen. https://t.co/ekXtq2OSEX
Some Leeds fans seem to be stuck in the past preferring days where a scouting network consisted of an English manager asking around in the pub who was rated. We need to move on with a global mindset if we are to compete again. Luckily we are doing. #lufc— James Gill (@jgill1986) January 5, 2018
