White said about Tomiyasu on Stadium Astro: “Obviously, you’ve all seen how he’s performed when he’s playing for Arsenal.

“He’s such a nice guy. He fitted straight in when he came. All the boys love him and he’s doing the business on the pitch as well. Doing really well.”

Tottenham Hotspur’s loss is Arsenal’s gain

Tomiyasu joined Arsenal from Bologna on summer transfer deadline day.

There was speculation that the 22-year-old was on his way to Tottenham Hotspur (The Athletic).

Arsenal eventually signed the youngster, who can play as a right-back or as a central defender.

Tottenham did sign Emerson Royal in the summer transfer window, but the Brazil international right-back is still coming to grips with the Premier League.

On other hand, Tomiyasu is flying in the Premier League and has established himself as the first-choice right-back at Arsenal.

The Arsenal no. 18 has played six times in the Premier League so far this season.

Tomiyasu is good with both feet, and his ability to play as a right-back or as a centre-back is a boon for Arsenal.

Arsenal have made a really good signing in Tomiyasu.
