Arsene Wenger believes Ryo Miyaichi has plenty of potential to become a top player for Arsenal in seasons to come.
The 20-year-old spent most of last season on loan to Wigan Athletic but his spell was cut short in March after the winger suffered an ankle ligament injury.
However, Wenger was full of praise for the Japan international as he continues his rehabilitation from the injury setback.
“I have great hopes for Ryo because he has the traditional Japanese qualities,” Wenger told Arsenal Player.
“Japanese players technically have a very good touch, they are mobile, agile, a bit lightweight but they move well. It’s usually a player that has a great attitude towards the team.
“Ryo has a fantastic attitude for sure. He has just come out of rehab after a big knee injury, and the physios have told me they have never known an attitude like it. So he has those qualities, and as well he is tricky, has great pace, and works very hard.
“He has to learn to become mature tactically – shrewd tactically – but all the rest, he has.”
