Reports from the Gulf (heh, yeah, we know) suggest that Emirates side Al Ain are in talks with an ‘Asian striker from Arsenal’.
Although Ryo Miyaichi might fit the bill, the likelihood is that Park Chu Young is being targetted for a season long loan. The South Korean captain joined Arsenal in August last year but failed completely to make a breakthrough to the first team.
Although there are sure to be depatures from Arsenal’s forward line this summer, it seems unlikely that Park would be anything more than a bit part player next season.
For the sake of his own footballing career a move would be in his best interests, and given the amount of goals he scores against Arab sides while on duty with his country, Al Ain might be the perfect fit.
Cheers to @RYO_cleverfish for the heads up
