Arsenal's Miyaichi tipping more Asians to succeed in Premier League

Arsenal young gun Ryo Miyaichi believes that there will be plenty more Asian players coming to the Premier League.

The 19-year old Japanese winger is among a growing list of south east Asian players in the Premier League including Gunners teammate Park Chu-young (Korea Republic), Manchester United signing Shinji Kagawa (Japan), Southampton's Tadanari Lee (Japan), Sunderland's Ji Dong-won (Korea Republic) and of course former Manchester United and Korea Republic midfielder Park Ji-sung who recently joined QPR and he feels that there could be more coming in very soon.

"It is definitely difficult to play in the Premier League but if they work hard, they can definitely achieve something," Miyaichi told

"I think Asian football is definitely on the rise. There are now a lot of Asian players in Europe and the level is getting higher."
