Chu Young park completes Arsenal move

30 08 2011

Today sees the official arrival of South Korea captain, Chu Young Park, from Monaco.

If rumour is to be believed the 26 year old striker walked out of a medical with Ligue 1 champions Lille in order to board a flight to London and sign for the Gunners on a 4 year contract.

There is some confusion floating around as to whether or not he will be eligible during the entire duration of his stay at the Emirates as he may possibly have to serve 2 years national service. It is key to point out however that certain prolific South Korean sportsmen have been given exemptions in recent years.

 In an announcement earlier on today Park had these words to say regarding his move ‎”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.”

Park will wear the currently vacant number 9 jersey and will go by his preferred name of Ju Young Park.
