Feyenoord want Miyaichi stay

The 18-year-old forward has been a revelation in Rotterdam since

arriving on loan from the Gunners in January, establishing himself

as a first-team regular. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has stated his

intention to monitor Miyaichi during the pre-season, which the

Japan Under-19 international will spend in North London. Wenger has

hinted Miyaichi could have a role to play at Emirates Stadium next

season if he impresses over the summer, having already earned

plaudits in the Dutch Eredivisie. But Feyenoord technical director

Van Geel wants the youngster to ply his trade in Holland for

another campaign as he continues his development. “We would love to

have him here on loan for a year,” Van Geel told Voetbal

International. “Arsenal know we are good for him. Now we can only

wait for their answer.”
