Arsenal are keeping an eye on Kaoru Mitoma.
The British ‘Sports Bible’ said on the 6th 바카라사이트(Korean time), “Coach Mikel Arteta needs to prepare for the UEFA Champions League (UCL) next season. After the season is over, he is expected to find a new winger in the transfer market. Arsenal have emerged as a candidate to sign.”
“This season, Mitoma has shown great influence at Brighton. He scored 10 goals and provided 7 assists in all competitions, drawing attention from Chelsea and Arsenal. Arsenal enticed Mitoma through teammate and close friend Takehiro Tomiyasu from Japan. will do,” he added.
Mitoma made his professional debut after growing up at Kawasaki Frontale. It was hard to believe that he was a rookie. Mitoma scored a whopping 13 goals and 13 assists in 30 Japanese J-League games in the 2020 season. He was highly anticipated in many ways, not only in scoring but also in linking.
Brighton paid 3 million euros (approximately 4.4 billion won) to sign Mitoma. He immediately gained experience with the loan of Royal Winion Saint-Gilles Roise. He didn’t even need to adapt to the European stage. Mitoma proved his potential last season with five goals and four assists in the Belgian Jupiler League.
Returning to England, Mitoma quickly melted into Brighton. He began to be heavily used, especially after he took over as manager Robert De Gervi. Mitoma has emerged as an indispensable core for Brighton, scoring 7 goals and 5 assists in the English Premier League (EPL) alone this season.
He naturally skyrocketed his ransom. According to the football statistics media ‘TransferMarkt’, Mitoma has soared more than 7 times from the 3 million euros Brighton invested to the current 22 million euros (about 32 billion won). It is clear that a higher transfer fee will be required if the deal is concluded.
In the midst of this, Arsenal sent a love call to Mitoma. The fact that his Japanese colleague Tomiyas is playing can also definitely play a role. Brighton are seeking to renew the contract with Mitoma, who is receiving £10,000 a week (approximately 16.68 million won), but progress has not yet been made.
