Park Chu-Young has been told he must leave Arsenal if he is to keep his place in the South Korean team, reports the Metro.

Park signed for Arsenal on transfer deadline day from Monaco in bizarre circumstances that saw him disappear from a hotel room ahead of a move to Lille.

The South Korean captain apparently sneaked out of a hotel whilst Lille were busy drawing up his contract after receiving a last minute phone call from Arsene Wenger.

It was later confirmed that Lille dispatched representatives to chase Park down, searching airports and train stations frantically, but could not stop him boarding a flight to London.

Stranger yet, Park has never seemed to feature as an integral part of Wenger's plans at the Emirates.

Now the South Korean manager has urged Park to leave the Emirates in a bid to rescue his international career.

"Park knows what he has to do," Myung-Bo told reporters when asked if he should quit Arsenal.

"He must find a new team if he wants to remain in the national team."

The 28-year-old has made just six appearances since joining Arsenal in 2011 and was sent out on loan to Celta Vigo last year. Despite being allowed to leave for free, Park had no takers in the summer and remains part of the Gunners' squad.

Wenger is reportedly willing to tear up Park's contract and Japanese side Urawa Red Diamonds are keen to sign him if he were to become a free agent. However, Park is unwilling to run out on a contract that is earning him around £45,000-a-week.
