English Premier League club Arsenal have reportedly made a bid to Sanfrecce Hiroshima for striker Takuma Asano.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is on the hunt for a striker this summer and has already suffered a snub from Leicester’s Jamie Vardy.
While Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette and Alvaro Morata, who has rejoined Real Madrid, have been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates.
But it appears Wenger is looking beyond established names to bolster his attack.
Asano has scored 20 goals in 75 games for his club and has four international appearances for Japan.
According to media reports in Japan, the Gunners have moved for him with a formal offer.
The forward is expected to play at the Rio Olympics this summer for his national team.
