If Arsenal had to recall all their young players back from their loaned clubs, the Gunners would be able to compile a very strong team. Probably one that could compete in the top half of the table. So, if its one thing Arsenal don’t lack, it’s talented youths. One such player who is currently out on loan and is an exciting prospect for the very near future is Ryo Miyaichi.
The Arsenal youngster is currently out on loan to Wigan this season and has already earned the praise of his manager. Ryo Miyaichi made his appearance as a sub against Fulham and is expected to get his first chance at a start of the season in the Capital One Cup .
Martinez was quoted as saying, “That’s a real positive for us to have a couple of youngsters of that quality. I did think they were influential (against Fulham), the way that they came on and were infectious, they played with a real enjoyment and probably we lacked that rhythm early on in the game.’
“So I was really pleased with that and I think it shows the competition we’ve got now for places. It’s so important that everyone’s got an opportunity. It’s great to see Callum’s development over the last two or three seasons and I think he showed that he’s ready to help the team in many games to come. Ryo slowly is adapting and getting ready, and when he’s at his best he can be a player that gives you penetration and makes things happen.”
Ryo hasn’t had a lot of playing time so far this season but has already impressed the Wigan manager from his 37 playing minutes and has already bagged an assist. Will Ryo be in Wengers plans next season? If he continues to impress, I don’t see why not…
