Arsenal allow striker to complete Emirates exit

Published Add your comment

Arsenal striker Park Chu-Young completed a last-gasp loan switch to nearby Championship side Watford last night, moving in search of regular first-team football to keep his World Cup dream alive.

The South Korean international joined Arsenal on deadline-day in 2011 but has never truly featured in Arsene Wenger's plans, scoring just a single goal in seven first-team appearances across two seasons, including just a solitary Champions League start.

Park spent last season on loan at Celta Vigo but failed to earn a permanent move to La Liga, returning to the Emirates this summer and continuing a peripheral role on the sidelines.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger may be short of options in attack but does not consider the ex-Monaco forward suitable cover for Olivier Giroud, allowing Watford to complete a season-long loan switch that the Hornets hope will boost their promotion chances.

Wenger has now settled on Giroud, Lukas Podolski and Nicklas Bendtner as his central strikers for the remainder of the campaign, a line-up that the Frenchman decided not to boost in the final few hours of a quiet transfer window in North London.
