wenger-ryo miyaichi can have a big impact this season
The Japanese genius Ryo Miyaichi may only have a handful of senior competitive games under his belt in Europe, but Arsene Wenger believes that he can have a “big impact” on Arsenal’s push for the Premiership title this season.
The Gunners have secured a UK work permit for the 18 year-old, but Wenger reveals that Miyaichi still had to go back to Japan to sort out his exit visa before being available to light up the Arsenal attack, and he can play in just about any position according to Wenger.
“We got the work permit for Miyaichi because he is an exceptional talent,” The Frenchman said.
“Overall we are very happy because he is one of the players who can have a big impact this season.
“He will play as a striker, right or left, he is a winger type and he is very keen.
“He cannot play this weekend, he is in Japan at the moment to get a permanent visa to come back and be registered with the Premier League.
“He will not be available tomorrow or for the Champions League on Tuesday but he should be available after.”
With very few inuries to worry about, Arsenal should have more than enough firepower to win the first couple of games without him, but wouldn’t it be great to see Miyaichi unleashed against Liverpool and Man United?
