Arsenal FC have officially confirmed the signing of South Korea international Park Chu-Young from Ligue 2 club Monaco for a reported £3m.
Chu-Young, 26, looked set to leave the newly relegated Monaco for Lille this summer only for Arsenal to swoop late for the striker’s services. He has now agreed personal terms and completed a medical.
Arsene Wenger said:
“We are delighted to have signed Chu. He will add true quality to our attacking forces and will be a valuable addition to the squad.”
“I am very honoured and I feel very happy to be at Arsenal. It is a dream to be here and I am really proud to be an Arsenal player. Now I just want to show how good I am and prove myself.
“In my opinion this is a great club, now I have to show what I can do on the pitch. I will do my best, I will never give up, I will show heart, I will give everything and I hope [the fans] will support me.”
Welcome to the club Park, he should provide more competition for Chamakh upfront, and will provide some much needed height to the attack.
