Reebok Stadium side close in on Emirates Stadium youngster.
Bolton boss Owen Coyle is set to sign Arsenal’s Japanese winger Ryo Miyachi on loan – and kick off a spending spree.
The pacy 18-year-old has yet to make his Gunners debut but is highly rated by Arsene Wenger. Coyle is set to take him on for the rest of the season to fill his final vacancy for Premier League loans.
The Trotters boss is waiting on Crystal Palace to accept his £5million offer for exciting prospect Wilfried Zaha. Coyle has put most of his spare finances into the Zaha move and is desperate to land the 19-year-old ahead of NEWCASTLE and STOKE.

This may well be a good deal for all concerned. The Reebok Stadium has proven a very healthy port of call for youngsters looking for a taste of top level action to help build up their level of first team experience, Jack Wilshere and Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge have both benefited from loan moves to Bolton in recent seasons, and Ryo Miyaichi may be set to do likewise.
The teenager showed great ability whilst out on loan at Feyenoord last term, where he netted three, and laid on five assists in 12 matches with the Eredivisie side. Thus far this season the 18 year old has only experienced Carling Cup action, managing 36 minutes playing time against Shrewsbury and Bolton, and still seems some way of getting Premier League football with the Gunners.
Bolton are looking to bring in a number of additions before the transfer window slams shut, as detailed by this source, and having sold Gary Cahill to Chelsea, Coyle brought in American defender Tim Ream, knowing that shoring up his defence must take top priority.
Coyle’s side are currently in 17th spot, just a point off the drop and with some crucial games coming up.
