Emirates teenager ready to make first team bow.
Arsenal will this summer award Ryo Miyaichi’s speedy progress with a place in the club’s first team squad for next season.
There is no denying that the Japanese teenager has already surpassed expectation during his loan spell with Feyenoord where he has become a cult hero and the proud owner of a new nickname at the Eredivisie side, “Ryo-naldo”.
Such is the speed of development shown by the young winger that not only does it look like he will take part in the Copa America but that he will also be handed a spot in Arsenal’s first team squad next season. According to talkSPORT the hugely talented wide man is some way ahead of schedule and his efforts in Holland have not gone unnoticed.
Ryo Miyaichi may not have played a single minute of senior football for the North London club but he is already a big favourite with Gunners fans who lap up any footage of the 18 year old in action and those viewing the Aichi born starlet have not been disappointed.
Miyaichi scored twice on the weekend helping Feyenoord to a 6-1 mauling of Willem II and now reportedly a target of Napoli who are interested in signing the Japanese wonderkid who Arsenal will hope will be granted a full work permit so that he can make an impact at the Emirates Stadium next season.
Though Wenger clearly has a number of other wingers at his disposal, with the likes of Samir Nasri, Theo Walcott, Andrei Arshavin to name just three, there is every chance that Miyaichi will be a big hit at Arsenal and will of course help to raise the profile, and financial potential, of the Premier League club in the Far East.
