    Hope he can get his permit and be ready for next season. Think he could work well out wide in Emery's system. While also there's a case for him playing just off the striker maybe depending what way we setup.

    But he's 23 playing in what league? He needs to be playing top football..

    Bundesliga is not a good league ?

    It is going to be a long shot, but would love to see him do well. Not expecting him to be a great player and all but would be great if he's a good squad player for us.

    Name one other team which would be able to compete in the EPL other than BVB and Bayern? It's a one and a half horse race over there.

    So players who are in that league aren't good till they prove themselves elsewhere? So Pavard is also not good ?

    No, i'm reaching man. Honestly didn't realise he was in the bundesliga till you mentioned it. Still we find players struggle when coming to the EPL..

    Kdb turned his career around in that league. Let's just hope Asano can just get a few goals here and there and be a super sub or something. That's the maximum I expect of him.

    Very true. I had a mate who was saying "City bought a dud", oh boy was he proved wrong.

    Is he still not eligible for work permit or did we loan him out once again because he has no future here?

    I got burnt with Ryo when I thought he's the second coming of Jesus, the Asain CR7 so I'm on the fence with this guy. :lol:

    Ryo had more potential, imo. Asano looks to be Perez level.

    Asian player. AFC would have crazy support if they played a few more Asians.

    Wenger tried hard with Inamoto, Ryo but they just couldn't find a good one.

    A decent transfer fee to a mid-table Bundesliga club is all that I am expecting from him at this stage.

    Only 32. How did his stock drop so quickly?

    Yeah and he made a balls of a corner in the world cup with Belgium countering at the end and scoring. Sad way to end his International career as he retired after it. He's usually so good in dead ball situations.
    Didn't realise he's managing Cambodia too. Just googled it there and apparently he video conferences them once a week and doesn't get paid for the role. Fair play to him.

    he had a bad season and german reports saying hannover will not play him any more to avoid the binding "option" to buy

    i doubt he will get work permit for us.

    he has only 1 year contract left.

    we cant loan out a player with only 1 year left, can we?
