Arsenal last night announced the signing of Japanese teenager Ryo Miyaichi.

The 18-year-old striker, who can also play in the left wing position, has signed a long-term contract with Arsenal but leaves the club immediately on loan to join Feyenoord.

Arsene Wenger spoke of his delight on landing the talented youngster, and hopes the Asian starlet will have a bright future with the Gunners.

“We’re delighted that Ryo Miyaichi has joined us. He trialled with us in the summer and has raw ability which has attracted many clubs around the world," Wenger told the official Arsenal website.

"We wish him luck in Rotterdam with Feyenoord and we look forward to helping him with his continued progression when he returns to Arsenal.”


The Gunners hope Miyaichi gains valuable experience during the remainder of the season in the Eredivisie, with the former Chukyodai Chukyo High School star set to return to Arsenal at the end of the season.

Miyaichi has trained with Arsenal on a number of occasions throughout the past year, with the north London club eager to add the player to their crop of young talent at the Emirates.

Wenger is renowned for getting the best out of young talent, and will hope to do the same with Miyaichi at Arsenal.
