Although Mizuno is also a natural right-midfielder, Nakamura believes they can play together.
"I'd like to help him because we're both Japanese," said Nakamura. "He's a young player as well so maybe I can support him. I had quite a hard time in Italy, so I'll help as much as possible. I'm sure he can train with the first team, that's for sure.
"He's still a young player and it will be his first time away from home, so it will take him a few months to settle down here. It might be difficult, but I'm sure he can do it. I'm sure he can play as a right-back as well, so maybe that's a possibility."
