Takehiro Tomiyasu has been plagued by injuries in recent seasons, which is one of the reasons he hasn’t seen much action for Arsenal.
A setback at the start of the season caused Mikel Arteta to make Ben White his first-choice right-back, and the Japanese star has struggled to start since.
His country chose him for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup squad and he came off the bench against Germany in their opening game.
The defender performed admirably, but it has now been reported that he had another physical setback following the game.
According to Sport Bible, the defender missed his country’s workout on Thursday due to a thigh injury.
This is the latest injury setback he has suffered and it remains unclear if it is serious or if he will be back soon.
Tomi is one of our best players and must address his fitness issues as soon as possible.
The full-back has missed so many games due to injury, and we need to get him back in shape as soon as possible.
Hopefully, this isn’t a long-term issue and he’ll be able to play for Japan again at the World Cup.
