NO Hazard deal, Park Chu Young to Arsenal €3m

With over £100m in the kitty, Arsenal fans all wanted the marquee signing of Eden Hazard.. But, typical! it now seems like its going to be an unknown cheap signing….AGAIN!

L’Equipe reporting Monaco striker Park Chu Young is on his way to Arsenal to sign for a fee around €3m-€5m

Park was about to sign for Eden Hazard’s club Lille and was seen as a possible replacement, but according to the Lille’s Chairman Michel Seydoux he is now on his way to Arsenal.

“We are stunned by this unacceptable behavior in terms of human qualities. This shows that the player had nothing to do in Lille. We agreed everything, he left his hotel room in the middle of the night and is now on his way to Arsenal. Seydoux said.

Park had his part one of his medical with Lille yesterday, part2 was due today. Apparently Wenger called the player directly and he is now heading to London as we speak.

If this is the case then we can forget about signing Eden Hazard!

    The eden hazard situation has been done to death. He was never going to leave lille this summer nor could the club let him leave. The club won the french league and have champions league football this season. He is more likely to review his position at the end of this season. Any transfer will probably not take place until summer 2012. I am trying to ignore blogs about transfer targets and see who has signed after the window has closed. I hope the club strengthens the team in its weakest positions such as central defence and defensive midfield.

    Hi there.

    I have to say Park is a very intelligent player in South Korea.

    Park will be the soccer player Like Henry.

    Henry is also from Monaco.

    August 27, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    didnt see his video yet but i did saw him in last world cup
    this would be lil dangerous signing for arsenal cause this player have never been to epl nor la liga
    but im pretty sure that his experience will be helpful but I think the first thing we need to care about is defence.

  10. frenchguy

    August 27, 2011 at 8:57 pm translate this and you will see it s not very good for arsenal …arsene used to have good relationship with lille (cygan, gervinho) and park was a substitute if he signed for Lille…it s not a star of french championship and absolutly not henry!!! and now it s die for hazard …

    This guy looks a real talent and i welcome his arrival.A players quality is not always linked to their transfer fee,you can get super players on the cheap sometimes and players who have been bought for big money have sometimes been big flops.We do need a few more signings without a doubt because our squad is light in terms of numbers and quality.our current squad consists of real talent and very poor players who are not premiership class let alone Arsenal class.The club must learn from their errors this summer as we have acted so novicey in the way we have done things.You have to get your house in order early and have a settled,gelled squad ready to challenge.Arsene the genius should know how to go about his business by now and its simply laughable for other clubs looking in.Aint funny to us gooners who are sick to death of following a business instead of a football club.

    He looks a complete striker from the video clip and a bargain at 3-5 million. He scores with left/right foot and headers. Can score from inside or outside the box or even from free kicks. Can play wide or through the middle….i’d tip him to do well for the arsenal.

    Do you know if Hazard CAN leave? Do you know if he wants to play for Arsenal? For God’s sake shut up and wait.

    Look he can still get both as Hazard has agreed 2 join his cousin vermalen at arsenal park is a good player wenger has intentions he had a 30m (euros) bid rejected looks now there going 2 accept his 35m arsenal will be a good team we won’t win the league he needs these players 2 do such a. Thing
    1) Hazard
    2) Gary Cahil
    3) M’villa
    4) Arteta
    5) Park Of course is now coming
    6) Eljerio Elia

    This Article completely misses the point, in that in suggests that Park is not a quality signing. Park is an exciting player, real quality who can play up front or an an attacking midfielder. People forget that our striking options at the moment include Bendtner and you cant argue that this chap isn’t a significant upgrade on Bendtner. So don’t be short sighter or overly concerned about his not being a “big name”. I guarantee you that you will be pleased to see him coming on/starting in place of Bendtner and in that sense the signing is definitely bolstering the squad.

    Park Chu Young is a very good player! Its a good buy for Arsenal but i still think we need to buy players that are more proven than he is #justsaying

    I welcome chu young park to arsenal. Just because Liverpool/mcity buy players an ridicules amount of money doesn’t mean that they buy better players the us. Samir nasri was unknown and cheap yesterday please give the player a chance. I am sure him and gervinho will play as good as anyone this season.

    August 28, 2011 at 7:04 am

    good signing for sure…. but wenger must still try his utmost to sign hazard, his recommended by zidane too…… hopefully he arrives sooner than later God willing of course….

  28. bergy

    August 28, 2011 at 7:45 am

    Could you, Danish gooner, tell us everything we need to know about this player? I’m sure you have seen him in action at least 30 games, as you are able to tell us he’s crap.

  29. spooky

    August 28, 2011 at 8:47 am

    i wanna see this guy ASAP!!
    i heard he is the captain of south korea
    you know park ji-sung in United
    he was the captain before this guy
    i think he will start at sub, with Chamakh but
    in my opinion this guy is better than Chamakh, Gervinho
    welcome park chu-young, not park ji-sung

  30. NOOOO park deal !!!

    August 28, 2011 at 9:42 am

    F@ck Off all korean dick head.
    I think wenger is getting absolutely insane.

    August 28, 2011 at 10:13 am

    Ok Korean guys stop typing stupid comments.

    Some ppl may search on the web by themselves so that they soon figure out his ability by his

    of course, records don’t tell everything about one player. but that’s how it is.

    just wish park a good luck. don’t try to fight in gunners’ websites. that’s crazy.

    and some koreans leave negative comments on park and then some koreans try to argue w/
    those comments. how funny.

  32. Eric

    August 28, 2011 at 10:15 am

    And bergy, since many ppl are not professional scouts or anythin like that so gooner doesn’t have to judge park with watching 30 games. you’re overreacting.

    August 28, 2011 at 11:57 am

    OK – looks brilliant on YouTube but so does everyone! However, I have seen this player in Ligue 1 – he is perfect for Arsenal. Why?

    1) He works his guts off
    2) He knows how to score, has great touch, intelligence, movement and positioning
    3) Good team player – always plays for the team
    4) He takes a mean free kick i.e doesnt balloon every shot over the bar (looking at you RvP!!!)
    5) isnt motivated by money – looking at you Na$ri!
    6) There isnt a big team in S. Korea that share his DNA – just the military and hopefully he can get out of that commitment.
    7) AW likes him – and he knows his attacking players.

  34. wenger

    August 28, 2011 at 12:38 pm

    I believe wenger knows what he have to learn.
    He need to improve himself for be a real gunners.
    He’ll fit in SS, not CF.
    Cause he has good kick&pass skill and speed.
    With also, Good jumping and heading.
    But not good in finishing.

    August 28, 2011 at 1:59 pm

    As I write,MC are 4-1 up. I can’t see MC letting Spurs geta away witha draw.Hopefully the gunners have absorbed the lessoens of the NU game and slug it out if leading 1-0.

    For fuck sake wenger just resign…

  37. WTF

    August 28, 2011 at 5:42 pm

    Seems like not a bad player…
    Though Arsenal has several attackers, it seems like there must be some more…
    Van Persie is a good player but he always ruins his season with injuries…
    Vela is still young and Arshavin is not capable for attacker…he does his role at midfielder.
    Gervinho….well…i think we have to wait until he shows what he really has but…not enough right now.
    Bentner…he sucks….
    Chamakh is too quiet…what is he doing these days??
    No one knows what’s gonna happen with Park but…i believe it’s not a bad choice considering there is no more time to wait for other big star…

    Park did not the right thing. He had absolutely no obligation to commit to Lille. Furthermore, you just don’t turn down Arsenal when Arsene called you personally. And let’s not forget what Lille did and how they treated Park and Monaco…they played games with Monaco, degraded Park as a human and it just serves them right on the outcome with how they have been (mis)behaving. I’ve always said if there ever is one Korean player to be at Arsenal it would be CY Park, no doubt.

  41. yea well

    August 29, 2011 at 5:29 am

    some commebt on his score points but considering that monaco was one shitty team and s of militaryhis position is ss… You will understand better of it. Also reason for his cheap price is because of the fact that he has to serve 2year in korean army. Only reason js park didnt have to serve army was because he was forsaken for his effort in 2002 world cup. If he wasn bound with this shit service that all korran men have to aerve… I tell ya he wouldve been much more expensive

    Park is very selfless player, smart player(His IQ is over than 150), this is the best choice for Wenger!

  43. serious

    August 30, 2011 at 5:59 am

    i see alot of koreans writing comments lol
    he is a good player but not worth this much money.

    Although I have to say what on earth is Arsenal doing??
    They need to get DF/MF and not FW…
    Also lost relationship with one good club.
    Very dissapointing decision…..

    They should spend money on positions that they really need and not subs…

  44. promzy9

    August 30, 2011 at 1:16 pm

    Lets stop blabbing over what we don’t know… for all I know, at least Park will be better than Ferdinand Torres… and he’s a sharp attacker with nice body movements… I think he’s going to make a good debut for Arsenal…

  45. Simon Dominique

    September 5, 2011 at 8:28 am

    Park is good deal, except he has to go to the army.

    to get his exemption he needs to at least win bronze in the olympics…. WAT SOUTH KOREAN TEAM???!!

    thats like the chance of england making it to the finals in the world cup… NOT GONNA HAPPEN…

    Ju young does seam quite skilled, and give him some time – thinkin this guy is cheap is definately not the kind of attitude you wanna get once youve seen JS park at Man U. I remember him being ranted as some t shirt seller from asia. guys even said ching chong chang chang ching chong!! to the guy.

    But hey, do you really wanna go through that again?? the cycle gets kinda old.

    plus, just labeling this guy as “short” (as some of you guys said) cus hes from asia is gonna make a band of guys in the short list – given that hes 182.

    I mean, I hope good for the team (duh), and i do fudgin hate to see effed up signings (like fab and nasri leavin), but to make predictions and forecasts that some unknown dude will stay unknown is going to be rude and disrespectful to the guys who are committing their lives to futbal. I think Wanger is good at seekin out some good treasures from the sand (nasri had been “unknown”) – We’ll see if the case continues.
