Reports claim Arsenal striker Takuma Asano will remain with German club Stuttgart for a second straight season after he failed to receive a working permit to ply his trade in UK.
The 22-year-old joined the Gunners from J-League club Sanfrecce Hiroshima for £5m during the last summer transfer window. He therein joined Stuttgart on a 1+1 loan deal with a few stipulations allowing the Gunners to cut short the overall length of his temporary contract.

Takuma Asano will play with us next season. We have discussed this with him, his advisers and Arsenal.
