Rest of the world News… Arsenal to sign Japanese pin-up
His agent has today confirmed that he is in talks with several clubs over a possible move.
A playmaking midfielder, Honda had a brilliant World Cup for Japan last year, impressing with his energetic performances and match-winning goals. These performances spurred Arsene Wenger to describe Honda as the player of the tournament. He said, “When they [Japan] get that genius playing up front, he has shown what a class player he is.”
Arsenal came close to sealing a deal for Honda in last year’s winter transfer window, only to be beaten by CSKA. With Andrey Arshavin rumoured to be wanting away, Arsene Wenger is suspected to make a move for the midfielder who would help drive the Gunners title bid!
The 24-year-old could also be seen as a mentor for Arsenal’s new Japanese starlet Ryo Miyaichi.
