Arsenal starlet Ryo Miyaichi is set to return to the Emirates for pre-season.

The Japanese teenager has spent the past three months with Eredivisie outfit Feyenoord, who took the youngster on loan from the Gunners immediately after he signed on January 31st.

A product of the Chūkyōdai Chūykō High School, Miyaichi had trials with a number of clubs across Europe before deciding to join Arsenal, and has immediately shined during his loan spell in Holland.

Sections of the Dutch media have even labelled the player Ryodinho, comparing the 18-year-old to the Brazilian legend Ronaldinho. His trickery and pace have certainly been well received at De Kuip, and Feyenoord would be happy to have him again next season if Arsene Wenger will again loan the player.

"Arsenal will make a decision over Ryo in pre-season," said De Stadionclub chief executive Martin van Geel.

"We have to respect that. He will probably not be playing at Arsenal next season due to English rules and regulations. However, it could be that he will be at another European club. Of course we hope we can keep him at Feyenoord. He is already settled over here."

A Japanese U19 international, the youngster has made eleven league appearances for his current club and appears to be relishing the opportunity with goals and assists to match.

Wenger, who has a track record of getting the best out of young talent, will be keen to bring the player back to the Emirates this summer and put him through the paces with senior members of the Arsenal squad.

A star of the future, Miyaichi also overs an avenue into the lucrative Asian market and is a prized asset that Arsenal will look to get the most out of in years to come.
