Arsenal are reportedly considering an offer from Saint-Etienne to let Park-Chu Young join the Ligue 1 side on loan.

The South Korean forward joined Arsenal from Monaco in 2011 but has failed to make an impact at the Emirates, making just one substitute appearance in the Premier League across two seasons.

Park was sent out on loan to Celta Vigo last season after scoring just once for the Gunners in six appearances, a strike against Bolton Wanderers in a League Cup tie.

The 28-year-old was unable to earn a permanent move to Celta despite playing 23 times in La Liga last year, leaving his future in limbo as Gunners boss Arsene Wenger kept him out of his plans for the new campaign.

Arsenal are desperate to find a new club for Park and may have found a suitor in Saint-Etienne, who have been actively seeking reinforcements in attack for much of the summer after selling Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Borussia Dortmund.

With a move for West Ham poacher Modibo Maiga stalling ASSE have asked Arsenal about the possibility of bringing Park back to French football before the transfer window closes, according to Le 10 Sport.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is currently short of strikers and had his options limited further by Lukas Podolski's hamstring injury earlier this week, which is likely to keep the German striker out for at least eight weeks.
