Japanese starlet Ryo Miyaichi admits he can't wait to finally realise his Arsenal ambition.
The 18-year-old's signing was confirmed by the north London club in January but he was immediately sent on loan to Eredivise side Feyenoord - where he has quickly demonstrated his abundance of talent.
Miyaichi has earned rave reviews for his performances in Holland and will return to Arsenal in the summer with his burgeoning reputation significantly enhanced.
Arsenal had to fight of competition from a number of other top European clubs to land Miyaichi, and the winger says he is humbled by the faith Arsene Wenger has shown in him.
"[Arsenal] is a wonderful team and I very happy to be a part of it," he said, as reported by AshburtonGrove.co.uk.
"I joined the training session in August and I was very fortunate to be rated by Mr Wenger and I believe this led to the result [of me being signed]."
"It's my dream to play for them [Arsenal]. So I made the decision [to sign] there and then.
"[Arsene Wenger's] every word made me more confident and that made me want to play for Arsenal even more. So he had a lot of influence on my decision.
"He told me to learn English quickly and he told me that his ground is my home. That really touched me."
When asked about his favourite Arsenal player, Miyaichi said: "With the Arsenal side it's [Samir] Nasri - any players whose strength is their dribbling.
"I like his ability to dribble through tight gaps. I saw him to do that a lot this season and that's something I can learn a lot from."
