Feyenoord manager Ronald Koeman has admitted that he is interested in signing Arsenal's young-winger Ryo Miyaichi, but insists that he isn't sure how the Premier League side feel about the possible transfer.
The 20-year-old winger signed for Arsenal back in January 2011 after passing a trial at the club in the summer of 2010, but he is yet to break into the first-team at the Emirates Stadium.
Since signing for the Gunners, Miyaichi has only made a handful of appearances in pre-season and League Cup games and has been sent out on loan on three seperate occasions.
The Japanese international first went on loan to Dutch side Feyenoord before heading to English sides Bolton and Wigan but is now wanted by the Dutch side on a permanent basis.
Miyaichi recently suffered a bad ankle injury during his time at Wigan, but he is expected to be fit in time for the new season.
Feyenoord manager Ronald Koeman has been speaking about a possible transfer for the Arsenal winger and he has admitted that he is interested in the 20-year-old. He has also revealed that nothing formal has been agreed as of yet as they haven't spoken to Arsenal about the possible transfer.
"It's right we are also working on Ryo Miyaichi, but at the moment it's not clear what the situation is," he told NuSport.
"After that, we can make a step. It's not that far yet."
