Miyaichi, 19, signed for the Gunners in 2010 and subsequently impressed when he went out on loan to Eredivisie side Feyenoord in 2011.

The Japan international continued his development with a spell at Bolton Wanderers last season and he could now be set for a return to the Netherlands.

Asked if Ajax were keen to take Miyaichi on loan, Ajax director of football Marc Overmars - a former Gunners player - told De Telegraaf: "That's right."

It is reported that Arsenal, who have included the player in their 24-man squad for their tour of Asia, have yet to make a decision.
