Ryo could move permanently in January


Arsenal are open to the possibility of Ryo Miyaichi leaving the club on a permanent basis.

The Japanese winger has made 5 appearances this season, the last in the Capital One Cup defeat to Chelsea in October. While a loan move for this month has long been mooted, clubs across Europe have been made aware of his availability on a full transfer.

Miyaichi signed from his Japanese high school after impressing during a trial and signed a professional contract in January 2011.

He enjoyed a successful loan spell at Feyenoord in 2011, scoring three times for the Eredivisie outfit, and had a spell at Bolton, but last season struggled at Wigan due to injury making just 7 appearances for the Latics.

Arsenal’s willingness to let him go is down to increased competition in the wide areas where’s he’s competing with Walcott, Gnabry, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Podolski and Cazorla, and lack of playing time has arrested his development.
