Feyenoord manager Ronald Koeman has admitted that the club are hoping to sign Arsenal's young winger Ryo Miyaichi.

The 20 year old joined the Arsenal academy back in January 2011 after impressing the club's coaching staff the previous summer while on trial.

Miyaichi instantly impressed in the youth set-up as manager Arsene Wenger picked the winger out as one for the future. After a successful loan spell in Holland with Feyenoord, injuries have hampered his progress.

Another loan spell at Bolton saw the Japan international struggle to make an impact, before his season was brought to a premature end with Wigan when he sustained ankle ligament damage in their FA Cup quarter-final against Everton.

Miyaichi was in the stands for the FA Cup final at Wembley where he confirmed that he would be returning to Arsenal for pre-season training once his injury fully healed.

He is expected to be fit for the start of the season but it seems Feyenoord are keen to try and lure the exciting young winger back to Holland.

"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."

Wenger has previously suggested that Miyachi could have a bright future at the Emirates and may well be keen to simply send him on-loan once again so see how he develops.

"I have great hopes for Ryo because he has the traditional Japanese qualities," Wenger told the official Arsenal website. "Japanese players technically have a very good touch, they are mobile, agile, a bit lightweight but they move well. It's usually a player that has a great attitude towards the team.

"Ryo has a fantastic attitude for sure. He has just come out of rehab after a big knee injury, and the physios have told me they have never known an attitude like it. So he has those qualities, and as well he is tricky, has great pace, and works very hard.

"He has to learn to become mature tactically - shrewd tactically - but all the rest, he has."
