Ryo Miyaichi Granted Work Permit | Fabregas & Nasri In Champions League Squad

Japanese teenage forward Ryo Miyaich has been granted a work permit which enables him to play for Arsenal this coming season, ruling out any possibility of him going out on loan. This is news that has been well received by everyone related with Arsenal as his electrifying performances during the pre season has wowed fans.

Arsene Wenger had this to say on hearing the news

    We are absolutely delighted that Ryo has been granted a work permit. This is almost like a new signing for us as we weren’t completely sure we would be given the authorization. Ryo has worked extremely hard in pre season and performed well in the matches in Asia Germany & Portugal

This has beefed up Arsenal’s attacking department which is still short on the defensive end. But nonetheless, this week continues to bring good news, let’s hope it can continue with new faces. He’ll go straight into the squad for the newcastle game along with new signing Oxlade-Chamberlain

The 25 man squad for the Champions league game against United has been released and surprisingly has both Fabregas & Nasri on it giving the clearest indication they’ll both stay or at least one would depending on late changes. Ryo doesn’t make the list according to @FourFourTom . I’m sure that’s not the complete list as there’s still to be confirmed a centre back signing.
