Winger to replace Chelsea-bound Moses.
Wigan are on the verge of completing the signing of Arsenal youngster Ryo Miyaichi on a season-long loan deal.
The 19-year-old spent last season on loan at bottom-club Bolton but impressed in his handful of performances for the relegated Trotters.
Bolton boss Owen Coyle was desperate the land the youngster for another season but Gunners manager Arsene Wenger is keen for the youngster to continue his development in the Premier League.
Wenger is bound to have been impressed by the way Wigan boss Roberto Martinez has helped former loanees like Manchester United’s Tom Cleverly, now a full England international, fulfil their potential.
Miyaichi will directly replace outbound Wigan forward Victor Moses, who is on the verge of joining Chelsea in a £9m deal.
Miyaichi, who has one cap for Japan, is currently on international duty but is set to meet his new teammates on Friday and could make his debut in the Latics Premier League opener against Chelsea on Saturday.
