Arsenal’s talented young winger is being tracked by Italian club Napoli, and that will spell bad luck for the gunners, as his work permits problems could prevent him from going to the Emirates and moving to Napoli on a permanent basis instead.
Sky Sport Italia reports that Napoli, who currently sit second in Serie ‘A’, are looking to add depth to their squad for a potential Champions League challenge next term. However, Arsene Wenger is thought to be a huge fans of the 18-year-old and will want him to come back to Arsenal, although Goal.com claim issues over a work permit could yet hamper the player’s future laying at the Emirates.
Understandably the Gunners are keen to keep Miyaichi, whose performances in the Eredivisie have led to sections of the Dutch media nicknaming the player “Ryodinho” and drawing comparisons to Ronaldinho. Arsenal beat off strong competition to land the former Chukyodai Chuyko High School starlet after a successful trial in north London, and Wenger believes the player could have a bright future.
We’re delighted that Ryo Miyaichi has joined us. He trialled with us in the summer and has raw ability which has attracted many clubs around the world
