Arsenal's struggling striker Park Chu-Young is set for a season long loan move to FA Cup winners Wigan, according to the Daily Mirror.

The South Korea international has managed just six minutes of Premier League football since his late summer switch from Monaco in August 2011 and could spend his second consecutive season on loan having spent the year at Celta Vigo last term.

Chu-Young has even fallen behind Nicklas Bendtner in the Arsenal ranks, as the Dane now occupies the former Monaco man's spot on the bench.

Wigan manager Owen Coyle is desperate to add another centre forward to his squad having lost both Grant Holt and Marc-Antoine Fortune to injury, and he believes the Arsenal striker to be a genuine option.

The move would present the Gunners forward with a chance to play more first-team football and earn his place back in the national squad ahead of the 2014 World Cup.

28-year-old Chu-Young would bolster the Latics squad as Coyle attempts to balance his players fitness through a packed fixture list - though the South Korean would be ineligible for their Europa League campaign.

Interestingly,  Chu-Young's only goal in Arsenal colours came against Coyle when he was in charge at Bolton Wanderers.
