Real Madrid have taken an interest in Arsenal winger Ryo Miyaichi, according to reports.
The Japanese starlet is currently plying his trade on loan at Feyenoord, having moved to the Eredivisie club immediately after signing for Arsenal on deadline day in January.
Miyaichi has been an instant hit following his arrival in Holland, producing a string of man-of-the-match performances and scoring some vital goals. It has even led to comparisons to Cristiano Ronaldo in the Dutch press.
At 19 years of age, Arsenal appear to have a star of the future on their hands after securing his services following a couple of trials at the Emirates, but reports in Spain claim Real Madrid are keen on bringing the player to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Jose Mourinho is thought to be keen on taking the player to La Liga immediately after his loan finishes at De Kuip, and could make an immediate offer at the end of the season.
However, Arsene Wenger is unlikely to allow the starlet to leave the Gunners even though Miyachi hasn't made a senior appearance for Arsenal yet.
The Frenchman fought hard to secure the former Chukyodai Chuyko High School star's signature ahead of a number of rivals, and will be desperate to reap the rewards from the player at Arsenal in the future.
Arsenal have not put a valuation on the player, and are keen to avoid any potential business with the Spanish capital despite reported interest in Lassana Diarra.
