All You Need To Know About Yoshinori Muto

According to BBC and The Independent, Japanese forward Yoshinori Muto, 22 has been recently linked with a move to Chelsea.

There’s nothing new or exciting about this news because many such footballers have been linked with a move to Chelsea in the past. Their transfers were completed, but they could not make it to Chelsea’s first team.

Lets us now find out who exactly this player is and if he’s one from the bottle or something unique.

Full Name: Yoshinori Muto
Clubs: Keio University, FC Tokyo (Since January 2014)
International Caps (Japan): 14
Playing Position: Forward
Height: 1.78 Meters
Market Value: 1.25 Million Euros (


Muto is an excellent forward who comforts himself in almost every attacking role. He can play on the flanks as well as a typical out and out forward. But the position he is most comfortable in and loves playing at is on the left flank where he plays as a left inside forward and gives continuous support to the striker by creating chances. Muto also has an eye for a goal, and he is an exquisite finisher who manages to find the back of the net from almost everywhere. Since he is a Japanese player, being lightening quick is in his blood and owing to his fast pace, he is lethal during counter-attacks. His other areas of strength are his quick and effective combination play, his accurate short passing, and his vision.


Yoshinori does not have any significant weakness but just like every other young and underdeveloped footballer he will need grooming. He is exceptional in every aspect and has amazing attributes, but the only thing he lacks is maturity. In order to gain maturity, he should work hard and get selected for the Japanese national team more often or just migrate to European football.

Final Verdict

Muto is a very good footballer who has a very bright future ahead of him but to make his future even brighter; he needs to join a top European club. As of now the FC Tokyo front man has not decided anything about his long-term future, but it’s quite obvious that it will be a huge decision for the young Japanese international to move to England. In retrospect, all Japanese players in the Premier League have either been huge flops or have failed to adjust to the squad. Whether or not to join Chelsea, is Muto’s decision but Chelsea are always ready to welcome a new player in the squad. Even if he joins, Chelsea regular first team action will be next to impossible because of our talisman Diego Costa.
