Park Chu Young has made a good impression within the soccer community. Now, he looks to play in one of the most revered leagues in the world on a top club.
Park is coming in as a midfielder. He led Monaco to be runners-up in the 2009 Coupe de France and hit 25 goals in his 91 games for the club.
Park is very quick and possesses the ability to outrun the speediest defenders, which makes him dangerous in long-ball situations. He also is very good at determining what to do in dead-ball situations.
His weakness are consistency. If Park can find some consistency, he will be a solid midfielder. He also needs to improve himself in one-on-one situations, which will only make his speed more dangerous.
Former Monaco coach Guy Lacombe had this to say about Park: "He knows that he must always be available. He is also remarkably strong in the air, despite his average size. He has very good timing."
Park has proved he can lead in strong leagues, but his ultimate test will come in the form of the Premier League this season with Arsenal.
