Loan rangers gunning to make big impact at Arsenal

Published Add your comment

After watching Jack Wilshere have such a significant impact on the Arsenal first team this season, Henri Lansbury is hoping to follow suit during the next campaign. 

Like his younger counterpart did with Bolton, Lansbury gained invaluable experience on loan with Norwich this year, where he helped the Canaries seal promotion to the Barclays Premier League. 

The 20-year-old midfielder made 23 appearances in the Npower Championship for Paul Lambert's side - weighing in with four goals - and now has his sights set on a regular spot in Arsene Wenger's squad. 

"I just want to try and force my way into the Arsenal side next season," said Lansbury. "I have to come back raring to go, to be strong and try and take my place. 

"I'm ready to prove myself here and show the boss that I'm ready to be in the first team." 


Another Arsenal youngster to have impressed while out on loan is 17-year-old winger Ryo Miyaichi - whose performances in the Eredivisie for Feyenoord led to the Dutch press branding him 'Ryodinho'. 

Wenger has confirmed the Japanese sensation will return to Arsenal for the new season, and the youngster will play some part should he be granted a work permit. 

"I have only [heard] positive reports about him. He will be with us in pre-season,'' explained the Arsenal boss. "I think he is good enough, but if he is ready enough to have a place in our team, we will ask for a work permit and try to get him in. 

"What I like about Ryo is that he has good timing with his runs and understands when to go and where to go. That is something very important. He knows how to use his pace and he is an intelligent player."
