In the transfer market this summer, Japanese national striker Kaoru Mitoma (Brighton Hove Albion) is expected to wear the English Premier League Big 6 uniform in some way.
Major media such as the British media ‘Football 365’ reported on the 15th (Korean time) that ‘Brighton seems to have decided on Mitoma’s transfer fee in the summer transfer market’. 스포츠토토
Mitoma is a resource that manager Mikel Arteta is watching closely. Arsenal have already signed Brighton side striker Leandro Trossar for a total of 27 million pounds (41.1 billion won) in the winter transfer market. This amount includes £6m of options.
Mitomada has recorded 5 goals and 1 assist in 16 Premier League matches this season. Dribbling with the ball is evaluated at a considerable level. He also shows attacking power in the League Cup and FA Cup, and plays an essential role in Brighton’s cruise.
Coach Arteta has memories of conceding a goal to Mitoma. The media said, ‘Director Arteta seems to have been impressed by Mitoma’s ability to understand the flow of the game in the game at the time. He continued to express his intention to recruit. It seems only a matter of time before Mitoma wears an Arsenal uniform.”
If Mitoma joins Arsenal, he will form a Japanese duo with established central defender Takehiro Tomiyasu. In addition, there is also a game of confrontation between Korea and Japan with Son Heung-min of North London rival Tottenham Hotspur.
Brighton set a ransom for Mitoma of 31 million pounds (48.1 billion won), more than the transfer fee they received for the transfer of Trosar. For Brighton, who signed for £2.5 million (3.8 billion won) from Kawasaki Frontale in August 2021, it is a great business.
