Arsenal's Miyaichi target for another loan by Feyenoord

Arsenal's Japanese starlet Ryo Miyaichi impressed on-loan with Feyenoord so much that the Dutch side would like to discuss the possibility of another deal. Feyenoord technical director Martin van Geel intends to fly to London next month for discussions with the Gunners over the 18 year old winger.

"Arsenal are waiting for a yes or no on the application of a work permit for Ryo," Van Geel explained to Voetbal International.

"In mid-August, they hope to obtain an answer about it and I'm actually planning to fly to London."

Van Geel had previously stated Miyaichi could be surplus to requirements at Feyenoord this season, but after consideration the Dutchman admits versatile Miyaichi would help bolster other areas of his attack.

"We're not so strong in terms of our attackers," he added. "Ryo can actually deal with all positions up front.

"In regards to the left wing, that is doubly occupied. But for all other places up front we could do with strengthening."
