Not many Arsenal fans will be overly familiar with the works of one of their latest signings, Takuma Asano.

Asano plays for Sanfrecce Hiroshima in the J-League, and has done for the entirety of his short career.

At just 21-years-old, Asano is not only heading off to a new country, but he's also leaving behind the club and the supporters that have been with him since he first started in the world of professional football

After the final whistle in his side's 2-2 draw with Yokohama Marinos, he was presented with a bunch of flowers and addressed the fans to thank them for all their support.

It proved to be a bit too much for the young star, who broke down in tears as the fans applauded from the stands.

He was comforted by his team-mates, who came out on the field to bid him farewell and give him the bumps before he hopped on a plane to London.
