This news has not perhaps delighted many arsenal supporters because they’re mainly looking to get a top class goalkeeper not another teenage sensation whose skill it is yet untested. However, the manager Arsene Wenger thinks that it is a good acquisition and he’s hopeful that Ryo Miyaichi will start playing for the club very soon.
As I have already told that most supporters are now thinking off getting some big players in the upcoming January transfer window 2011. We are yet to see any plan from Arsene Wenger about getting some good players who will have enough experience to help the club.
As for Ryo Miyaichi, he’s just 18 years old and about him the manager said, "I am delighted Ryo will be joining us in the New Year.He trialled with us in the summer and has raw ability which has attracted many clubs around the world. I look forward to helping him fulfil his potential here at Arsenal."
But in case, you did not know, Ryo Miyaichi is not the first Japanese player to play for Arsenal. Nearly 9 years ago, Junichi Inamoto from Japan disappointed everyone. Hopefully, history will not repeat itself this time.
