In a world that everything is spinning around the money, football has its own ways of making them. After they sold this summer Clichy, Fabregas and Nasri and brought the Chamberlain and Gervinho, Arsenal is close to a transfer that will bring them a lot of pluses in the popularity domain, not talking about the extraordinary financial side.
Asian market is a very important one for big clubs in the Premier League, Manchester United and Liverpool being leading authority in this area. United says that two thirds of fans worldwide of their team are coming from Asia.
Being such important spot on the map, Arsenal understood the fact and wants to take advantage of the other teams from Premier League. This objective will be achieved by bringing the national team captain of South Korea, Park Chu-Young from AS Monaco. The 26 year old player is wanted also by Lille but the Gunners seem to be a better choice, the amount of transfer will be around 11.5 million.
Another team with the same tactics was Manchester United which brought Park Ji Sung in 2005 and won many fans in Asia. At Arsenal, Park Chu-Young won’t be the only Asian. In Wenger’s squad he will be accompanied by Ryo Miyaichi.
