Is he any good? He's hardly the stellar name I was looking for.

Heaven forbid with 25652 billions pounds in the bank we should buy a fking striker with pedigree.

b) We've seen him play

Who the fk is he again???

Looking at his wiki is grim reading too showed lots of promise as a kid but hasnt really d fulfilled it.the only good thing is he scored 12 goals in 33 games last year in a team that got relegated but hardly setting the world alight is it

from tw@tter

Lille president Seydoux on Park: "We are stunned by this unacceptable behavior in terms of human qualities."

Lille Pres. Michel Seydoux: "Park went to England, apparently to Arsenal. We are stunned by this unacceptable behaviour."

Apparently the Lille president went to meet Park after his medical, only to find his hotel room empty. Lille suspect he's off to Arsenal.

Park Chu-Young was ready to have Lille medical this morning, but unknown to Lille officials he's left France to fly to London for #AFC talks

Some reports that Arsenal have gazumped Lille for Korean striker Park Chu-Young

IF TRUE - LOL

He was just chosen as national team captain.
If nothing else, he can add leadership qualities to the team ... Thereby marking a huge improvement over bendtner on that score.

Seems like a useful addition ... and a cheap one, too!

All I can say is sender had better turn him into a megastar.

Lets trust Wenger's judgement. Today i watched mata and he turned the game around for chelski, now thats a player chelski signed only because they heard wenger was willing to pay 17m on him. Also, i watched lukaku, a player wenger wasnt interested in at all, and he isnt much better than JET in my opinion but he's been bought for a ludicrous amount of money. The other day some idiot pundits were condemning gervinho simply cos they don't know him. Now, its clearly wenger knows best and the media knows f.CkAll.

No mate. The reason they payed £17m for him is because he's amongst the best young talents in Europe, and has been tearing up the Spanish league despite being a teenager. Star in u21 Euro champs this summer too

Rumoured he was in London and could be an Arsenal signing for 32 million (Sm22). As if. Course he's going to a club with ambition.

Top of the league in May is looking further and further away, (for Arsenal, not Chelsea).
